WHP Programme

What is the WHP Programme?

The WHP supports individuals to find employment/begin self-employment and remain in work. The programme helps participants develop a personalised action plan and tailored package of ongoing support, and aims to support individuals to develop skills, gain confidence and improve their health and wellbeing.
