Get Involved

The University of Newcastle, in partnership with the icare foundation's WorkUp initiative, is currently offering free access to the Living in Recovery program for people in NSW with a work-related injury.

This is being offered as part of a pilot trial to understand how effective and useful the program is for Australia's workers.

Help guide program development

By getting involved in its earliest stages, you can help guide program development by providing feedback on your thoughts and experience with the program.

Any feedback you provide will only be accessed by research team from the University of Newcastle. We will not share your personal information with your employer, icare, or your claims manager.

If you are receiving workers compensation, you may be eligible for free access to the program during the pilot.

Here's the requirements:
