Work & Money

Live It Well has compiled some advice about how to get into work, how to maintain your job and some advice and guidance for employers.  We also realise that many people need debt help, benefits advice (including a benefits calculator) and even just help to manage a household budget.  You can find all this information on Live It Well’s Work and Money pages.

Many people find that work is good for both their physical and mental wellbeing. Although work can sometimes be stressful, the benefits gained from working outweighs this; work can also help recovery by providing job satisfaction, a sense of achievement and a supportive network. Working also means that people feel better about themselves and their future and their family’s future.
