Working Well Trust was first set up in 1991 and registered as a charity in 1992. A group of mental health professionals wanted to support people return to employment. At that time very little was available so they set up what would now be called a social enterprise. New projects were developed over the years and we now work with around 300 people a year who access one or more of our services as detailed below:
