Re-Instate is a charity working to improve employment opportunities, quality of life and well-being for disadvantaged people in the London Borough of Bexley, including people experiencing mental ill-health, people with learning disabilities, autistic adults and young people.

A key part of the vision for Re-Instate is the provision of employment services that build sustainable recovery for people experiencing mental ill-health.

Diversity and equality are at the heart of what we do, ensuring that everyone involved with Re-Instate focuses on the removal of barriers to the service regardless of race, age, gender, sexuality, religion or socioeconomic status.

The Employment Service works in partnership with Mind in Bexley and Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, to provide a Recovery and Wellbeing Service to people in the London Borough of Bexley, who are experiencing mental ill-health.

The service is funded by Bexley Council and Bexley Clinical Commissioning Group.

We understand that employment is a key part of maintaining mental wellbeing and we can offer support to you.
