Briefing 59: Individual Placement and Support: A guide for Integrated Care Systems
Many people with a mental health difficulty want to work, but aren ' t offered the right support. Individual Placement and Support (IPS) is an evidence-based model of supported employment which helps people with mental health difficulties into work and provides continued in-work support. It has consistently outperformed all other forms of support for people with severe and enduring mental health problems. This briefing sets out why and how IPS works, and how new integrated care systems (ICSs) can help more people living with mental health difficulties into employment, by investing in IPS.

Stop seeing unions as the enemy, says UNISON
Commenting on government plans for union ballots outlined by the chancellor today (Friday), UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea said: “The government must stop demonising unions and seeing them as the enemy. Strikes are a symptom of the cost of living crisis. “Instead of making it harder for employees to secure decent wages, ministers should be talking to unions about ways to solve problems. “Attempting to tie unions up in knots while pulling out all the stops for city elites just shows workers that the government is not on their side. “By threatening every employment right won through...

UNISON takes the government to court over law allowing the use of agency workers to break strike
Legal action against the government over new regulations allowing agency workers to replace striking staff has been launched by UNISON. The union issued proceedings with the High Court last week (13 September), triggering the start of a process seeking a judicial review of the government’s decision. UNISON is arguing that ministers’ changes are unlawful and should be axed. Business secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg has 21 days to respond from the date the case was lodged last Tuesday. UNISON is arguing the government’s change to the Conduct Regulations 2003* is unfair and based on unreliable evidence. These regulations ...
