WRAP service

WRAP (Work Related Assertiveness Project) provides tailored one-to-one support for 16-25 year olds living in Camden and Islington and experiencing a stress-related mental health condition. An employment adviser helps them work towards achieving their goals.

What does WRAP do?

Working with the Job Centre and supported by the Department for Work and Pensions, WRAP has been designed to provide young people with mental health issues with career advice and support.

How can WRAP help me?

At WRAP, we know that everybody is different and that stress, anxiety and low self-esteem can affect everybody in different ways. That’s why our approach to every situation is based entirely on what you’d like to achieve and – importantly – how you’d like us to help.

If you need a hand building your confidence up, finding employment or gaining qualifications – we’re here to help in any way we can. If you’d like to begin working towards a goal or career, we’re always on hand to offer advice, support and assistance.

However, we’ll only be as involved in the process as you’re comfortable and happy with. We’re here to work together and get you to where you want to be in your career, but how involved we are in that process is completely up to you.

Who can join WRAP?

  • Young people aged 16-25
  • Living in Camden and Islington
  • Not in work
  • Experiencing a stress related or mental health condition
