We are currently working with the stroke operational delivery network and voluntary organisations to develop a model for providing vocational rehabilitation for the people of Greater Manchester.
Vocational rehabilitation enables individuals with a neurological condition to overcome barriers to access, maintain and return to employment/education. Currently vocational rehabilitation services across Greater Manchester vary from area to area and our aim is to eliminate this variation.
A number of activities are currently underway to support with this project:
1) The provision of a 2 day Vocational Rehabilitation training event in order to upskill clinicians
2) An Greater Manchester audit of current Vocational rehabilitation provision for neurological conditions
