Welcome to Workways

If mental health is an issue in finding or staying in paid employment, then Workways may be able to help.


We specialise in the following areas:

  • Staying in work – helping people who are in paid employment and need support to retain or maintain their job. Workways Job Retention team are able to support you if you live in Exeter, East or Mid Devon or if you are an employee of Devon Partnership NHS Trust. 

  • Finding work – helping people who would like to find paid employment of any number of hours and who need some additional support to do so. Workways Supported Employment team are able to support you if you have a Care co-ordinator working with Devon Partnership NHS Trusts Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) or Specialist Team for Early Psychosis (STEP). CMHTs are based in Exeter, East Devon, Mid Devon, Torbay, South & West Devon and North Devon. 

Workways provides information, advice and practical assistance. Support is not time-limited and is focused on your particular interests and needs. We are able to provide as much or as little assistance for as long or as short a period of time as you wish.
