Staff

WIT is a peer support service and thus we have a policy of employing at least 70% of our staff who have themselves had a journey of mental health difficulties.

We also employ a number of staff who have a close family member experience mental health difficulties so as a staff team we are able to empathise with our clients and understand the struggles and the difficulties they experience.
