Find good work

At South Yorkshire Housing Association, we believe that a good roof over your head is the very foundation of health, and that it is impossible to flourish without a sense of home.

Our job as a housing association does not stop there. We are not just about putting roofs over heads – we work with our customers and employees to find opportunities to realise their potential, and to really make their mark.

Work can provide this meaning, and help us feel connected to the world around us. That’s why we’re committed to providing good work for our employees and customers through our work and wellbeing services.

Good Work supports amazing people, including those living with a severe mental health condition, to find the job you deserve.

Good Work

Good Work is based on Individual Placement Support, a ‘place then train’ approach. We’ve been given a further £2.7 million of funding from the The National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund to support adults from across the region to find employment. First, this means working with you to get a job. We learn about your strengths, skills and interests, and about how you work best. Then, we’ll move quickly to find the role that’s right for you.

People with disabilities and health conditions are among every organisation’s best and most resilient employees. We work with employers to recruit and retain these brilliant candidates, and offer specialist training and advice on workplace health and wellbeing.

Everyone deserves the right conditions to do their best work.

We believe that we should all be in workplaces that recognise our talents, and that support us to thrive. Being in work can also create more connections, give us a sense of purpose, bring financial stability and security, and help us to recognise and build on all our strengths.

 

Working Win

Working Win is a health-led employment trial for people with a health condition. The trial aims to find out how good this new service is at helping people to find and stay in work.

Over 6,000 people signed up to the trial, and we are no longer taking new participants. We’ve worked with some fantastic people to use their talents and skills to find or stay in employment, and will continue to support our participants for up to 12 months.

“Being back in work has given me a great sense of wellbeing. I’ve been able to treat my family to meals out. I feel I’m somebody and I’m getting paid to do something I enjoy, which is giving me a perfect work-life balance. After some struggles, I’m feeling content and looking forward to the future.”

“It’s a very lonely place when you are out of work. But now that I have a job my whole outlook has changed, and things are on the way up. I’m over the moon with my new role and it’s a real pleasure to come to work!”
