Thriving at Work

Thriving at Work aims to support more people to thrive at work. It has a particular focus on supporting inclusive workplaces that can unlock the potential of staff who are neurodiverse, disabled or experience mental health challenges.
Delivered through a network of specialist partners, we can offer 3 packages of support to businesses and people:
  • Inclusive Workplace – 1-2-1 business support to create an inclusive workplace.
  • Diversity Training – webinar series and specialist training for staff.
  • Workplace Support – 1-2-1 in-work coaching and support for individuals.
All support is free to access and available across York, North Yorkshire and East Riding.
Thriving at Work is part funded by the European Social Fund. It is supported locally with match-funding provided by North Yorkshire County Council, City of York Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and HEY Smile Foundation.
