Frequently asked questions

  • Is it really free?

    Yes. The Midlife MOT is a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) initiative that is fully funded by the Government. There is no cost to you or your employer for taking part. The Government is funding the programme because they believe it is important to help older workers with financial planning, health guidance and to assess what their skills mean for their careers and futures.

  • How many appointments are available to me?

    You will have up to four appointments across four months.

  • I need to make sure this fits around my work and commitments - what times are appointments available at?

    We offer flexible appointments between 8am and 8pm from Monday to Friday.

  • Is there a limit to how many workshops I can do?

    You will have unlimited access to workshops run by our Executive Coaches and Health Coaches – take part in as much or as little as you need. There may be a limit on the number of Reed Learning courses that you can do online. Your Executive Coach will discuss your focus areas and options with you.

  • I heard this is just a pilot of the Midlife MOT service. What does that mean?

    DWP are currently trialling the Midlife MOT support as a pilot. They have asked Reed in Partnership to run the pilot in East Anglia. This means we are seeing what works and doesn’t work for both employers and employees in the region. The more people who take part in the pilot, the more useful information and learning we will be able to share with DWP to inform future programme development.

  • Does the wellbeing check involve any medical procedures or blood tests?

    A few people have asked this so we want to make sure it’s clear – there is no blood test or other medical procedures involved in the wellbeing check. It is a light-touch assessment that informs what workshops and support you might need to improve your health – for example by moving more or eating more healthily.
