Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation:
what is it, who can deliver it and who pays?
The Government wants to help millions of people with mental health problems to work, shown by its response to Dame Carol Black’s review of the health of the working population and welfare reform.

Vocational rehabilitation is whatever helps someone with a health problem to stay at, return to and remain in work. We need to develop a vocational rehabilitation workforce that is capable of delivering evidence-based services and we need to find the resources to invest in changing the system.

As a contribution to this debate, in 2008 Sainsbury Centre and the College of Occupational Therapists joined forces to host expert roundtable discussions which addressed the thorny, practical issues about vocational rehabilitation – what is it, who can deliver it, who pays? This paper is the result.
