However, due to the success of the WorkFit Programme which supports employees whose mental and physical health is affecting their employment, Livewell Southwest and Pluss CIC are currently exploring other funding options.

Please contact the WorkFit team if you wish to discuss this further and/or have any questions relating to the WorkFit programme.
