Joss Hardisty – North West IPS Grow Lead

Joss joined Social Finance as the IPS Grow Lead for the North West of England in December 2019.

He has over twenty years’ experience of supporting people with mental health issues to find work and was part of the team that implemented the UK’s first IPS services at South West London & St. George’s Mental Health NHS Trust. After moving back to Cumbria, Joss has most recently set up the Employment Advisers in IAPT programme in South Cumbria, part of Cumbria Partnership Foundation NHS Trust.

Joss has experience of service design and delivery, of supervising Team Leaders and Employment Specialists and extensive experience of helping people gain and sustain employment.

Joss is excited by the prospect of supporting the growth of high fidelity IPS services across the North West, resulting in many more people achieving their vocational aspirations and the chance to rebuild their lives.
