Working with those people with aim to be getting better (2,3,4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

on the mend

Here is my best explanation:

'be getting better' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'working with those people with aim' is the subsidiary indication.

'working' becomes 'on'.

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'those people' becomes 'them' (I've seen this before).

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'aim' becomes 'end' (I've seen this before).

'on'+'them'+'end'='onthemend'

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for on the mend that I've seen before include "Improving in health", "Becoming better in health", "Making recovery", "Getting better after illness", "Regaining health", "Recovering from an injury or illness" and "Informally getting better, improving after illness or accident".)
