Support with Employee Health and Disability Service

The new Support with Employee Health and Disability service has been developed by the Department of Work and Pensions to help employers and managers provide better support to disabled people and those with health conditions in the workplace.

The service has been created to encourage more inclusive working environments, particularly aimed at smaller businesses, many of which do not have in-house human resources or occupational health support.

The guidance will help with:

  • managing absences and keeping in touch
  • having conversations with employees, in and out of work
  • deciding on changes to help employees stay or come back to work

Any employer can access the service, and businesses are invited to test and shape the new service through a short online survey. The feedback received will inform further updates to the site over the next three years, so that employers can best support disabled staff and those with long-term health conditions to start, stay and succeed in work.
