Seems it will be piloted in 15 areas across UK and my area is one of them . 

It’ll be led by a work and health coach, so basically a job coach renamed ! 

Starting this October 

it does say it’s a Voluntary service and you can self refer or a GP can refer you.

    It is all so vague.
    Not enough information has been given.
    My area is in one of to be piloted too.
    If you use the benefitsandwork site, there is an update om there under the 'news' section but again it is vague.

    It would be interesting to hear more about it and what it entails. Don't put yourself through it though if you think it might make your situation worse.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
