IPS Into Work

Coronavirus information

Due to the coronavirus outbreak and the ‘social distancing’ guidance issued by the government, we have needed to reduce and adapt the usual face-to-face support that we provide so we can keep our service users and staff safe.

We will continue to talk with you and help you even if coming into our service isn’t possible.

To check what support is currently available and if there are any changes to our opening times, please contact us on the details below and we’ll do our best to make sure you still get the help you need.


Our IPS into Work programme supports individuals across eight West London boroughs to gain paid, sustainable work through an evidenced-based model called Individual Placement and Support.

The areas that we currently provide this service are:

  • Barnet
  • Brent
  • Harrow
  • Hillingdon
  • Hounslow
  • Ealing
  • Kensington & Chelsea
  • Westminster

How to access our services

We offer a free high quality and professional support service for individuals affected by present or past drugs and/or alcohol problems. 

The service is open to unemployed individuals aged 18 or over who are looking for paid employment and living in one of the eight boroughs where we provide the service. Any professional, such as the Jobcentre Plus, housing support worker, drug and alcohol worker, social worker or nurse, can make the referral on your behalf. 

If you are a professional looking to make a referral to our service, please download and complete the IPS Into Work Referral Form, and email directly to our team. 

If you would like to discuss our service without a professional referral, please contact us by either phone or email on the details below.
