Introducing Able Futures

Your health and wellbeing at work is our highest priority and we are always looking for ways we can enhance the support provided.

Able Futures delivers the Access to Work Mental Health Support Service which is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and is available to employees who may be experiencing issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, or struggling to deal with problems such as debt, disrupted sleep or relationship breakdowns that may be affecting your mental health.

There’s no charge to use the service and over a period of up to nine months, support from Able Futures can help you learn how to take care of yourself enabling you to feel more confident in tackling issues and learning new ways to manage your mental health.

Support from Able Futures is available over the telephone, video calls and through email. There’s no waiting list and it’s a completely confidential service. Able Futures won’t inform your manager, colleagues, family, or friends that you have accessed the service.

If you feel you could benefit from some support with your mental health and wellbeing, call Able Futures on 0800 321 3137 or visit their website to find out more about the Access to Work Mental Health Support Service and sign up online.

This Mental Health Support Service complements our existing Occupational Health provision within the Council.
