The report of the Director of Public Health was considered which detailed the bid to fund the WorkWell programme which was an early-intervention work and health support and assessment service, providing holistic support to overcome health-related barriers to employment, and a single, joined-up gateway to other support services.


Wirral Place had been supported by Cheshire and Merseyside Integrated Care Board (ICB) to submit a bid in partnership with Knowsley Place. This is in recognition of the specific economic and population challenges faced by each borough, but also of their work in creating effective partnerships across all sectors. The outcome of the grant application would be known in early April 2024 with a delivery plan required by 31st June 2024 and an aim to have mobilised the service by October 2024.
