Welcome to Co-manage!

Co-Manage is under development. Co-manage will be a new toolkit that aims to provide easy-to-use guides and tools (e.g., checklists, infographics, video tutorials, templates, communications) that individuals with any long-term condition or disability, as well as line managers, organisations, and health professionals, can use together (or co-manage) to improve self-management in the workplace.As part of a study funded by the National Institute of Health and Care Research, led by Loughborough University, we are gathering ideas and opinions to make sure that Co-Manage is fit-for-purpose. Once this stage of research is complete we will develop the resources. in the meantime you can see our 'wireframe' (outline of the proposed toolkit) here.


Long-term conditions are typically defined as health issues that last a year or more. They may required ongoing medical attention and may affect daily activities. Some long-term conditions fluctuate over time meaning.

12.8 million workers in the UK have a long-term health condition or disability.

Taking action to recognise, treat and manage health is vital to staying well, and staying in work. Individuals with long-term conditions can take action to protect and promote thier health, but they can't do it on their own. Other people, such as colleagues, line managers, HR and health professionals all play a vital role in helping people with long-term conditions stay well and stay in work.
