Abstract IntroductionThere is strong evidence that improving employment outcomes for people with physical and mental health conditions and/or disabilities - helping them prepare for work, access good jobs and stay in employment - has the potential to improve health outcomes and reduce health inequalities. Camden council commissioned three health-focused employment pilot support programmes to test and build evidence of different approaches to support clients with severe and enduring mental health, common mental health need and those with learning disabilities/physical ill-health to access employment. The aim was to assess outcomes, value for money and benefits of an integrated approach.MethodA mixed methods design was used. The first two mental health pilots were evaluated at the project end using semi structured interviews with staff working on the pilots and clients taking part. The third pilot working with those with learning and physical disabilities was evaluated with semi structured interviews with staff and clients at interim and project end time points. Quantitative data was also collected to conduct a cost benefit analysis for all three pilots. ResultsThe data collection process is underway. Emerging findings show many clients in the mental health and learning and physical disability pilots accessed employment through the programme. All of the clients felt the support they received from the pilot was invaluable and instrumental in accessing employment. The final results will be available in August 2017.Conclusion Findings show that the pilots are effective in supporting these target groups into employment and sustaining it six months after initiation.
