Health and Work

The role of the Health and Work Steering Group (HWSG) is to lead on the delivery of a joint strategy on behalf of its ‘parent partnerships'- the Nottinghamshire Employment and Skills Board (NCCESB) and ONE Nottingham (via its theme partnerships- the Working Nottingham Partnership and the Nottingham City Health & Wellbeing Partnership).

 The joint Health and Work strategy aims to:

  • Promote health and well-being in the workplace; and
  • Provide support to people with a health condition to access employment, training and education.

Building on these two key aims, the Health and Work strategy will seek to:

  • Increase the employment rate by reducing the flow of fresh benefit claimants through targeted awareness raising and on-going business engagement. The partnership will aim to promote a culture of early supportive intervention between the employer and their employees, and healthcare professionals - in regards to work and well-being; 


  • Develop more innovative, joined up and personalised approaches to meet the needs of long term clients/service users out of work due to a health condition; in particular targeting ill health and:

              - Mental health problems;

          - Drug/Alcohol dependency;

          - Ex-offenders;

          - BME's;

          - Parents with young families; and

          - Learning difficulties


In order to help focus on the strategic role of the group, the HWSG has a small core membership made up of the partners with direct interest in enabling the successful delivery of the key responsibilities.

Wider involvement is critical however, and a range of service providers, professionals and providers are invited/will be invited at set stages.

The core membership comprises:

Ashfield District Council Economic Development
Jobcentre Plus Nottinghamshire
NHS Nottingham City PCT
NHS Nottinghamshire County (+ representation for NHS Bassetlaw)
