Vocational Rehabilitation Services for Individuals

KMA are experts in vocational rehabilitation services and helping employees return to work.

We understand the central role that work plays in your everyday life. We also know how an injury, illness or disability can disrupt this role and how hard it can seem to return to work, particularly after a long absence.

We can support you to plan and navigate your successful return to work by looking at your current functional abilities, at home or at work, alongside any barriers which may be preventing you from returning. We will work collaboratively with any health professionals involved in your care to ensure a co-ordinated and effective recovery.

With your consent, we will negotiate with your employer to make any reasonable adjustments i.e. a phased return to work, to help you build up your capacity to do what is important to you.

All our programmes are outcome/solution focused and sustainable.

We specialise in minor to severe injury, disability or illness including:-

  • Mental health disorders

  • Complex physical health conditions

  • Musculoskeletal disorders

  • Chronic pain

  • Cancer

  • Heart and Respiratory conditions

  • Learning disabilities

  • Neuro-developmental disorders such as Autism, ADHD and Dyspraxia

Our integrated approach ensures:

  • Clear and transparent goals from outset
