Individual Placement & Support (IPS)

Individual Placement & Support (IPS) is a ‘work first’ intervention designed to support people into their desired jobs, regardless of the stage in their treatment journey. Our mission is to support people to find paid work within weeks of being referred to our service.

To access IPS you must be using the local drug and alcohol service. You can speak to your key worker about IPS.

What is IPS all about?

IPS is open to all those who want to work and aims to get people into competitive paid employment.
