SOHAS is a registered charity that has existed for 40 years to help people who either live and/or work in Sheffield who are having difficulty at work either because of their health condition or because work is causing them problems with their health. We have advisers working in several GP surgeries in Sheffield and if we don't have an adviser at your surgery we will see you in our office.
We also provide support for Carers who are struggling at work, those with disabilities who need reasonable adjustments to help them at work and those people who are cancer survivors who want to return to their job. SOHAS provides employment advice to the IAPT service in Sheffield for people suffering with mental health problems. Our advisers can help with claims for employment related benefits eg, ESA, PIP, IIDB. We also undertake hearing tests for those in noisy work environments or who have left such employment in the previous year with a view to claiming benefits.
We also provide Occupational Health advice to employers needing to assess the health of their staff.
