northern rights are an exciting new company, directed by local people. Seeking to give practical, independent and confidential advice to people who are out of work, particularly if they have health issues. Our experience has shown that focus on profits detrimentally impacts on the quality of a service, northern rights are refreshingly ‘not for profit’. northern rights are driven by evidence stating work is good for your health; physical, mental and social well-being. Being without work can have a devastating effect on individuals, families and communities.
