Organisation type: 
Geographical remit: 


To provide community and social support services for the community. We aim to help people live safe, healthy and independent lives and to maximise their potential. We run a community centre and a range of projects for older people, people with learning disabilities and families with young children. We have developed our services and have a range of projects. Out help is important as the services we provide are vital for the most vulnerable and promote independence, from enabling people to go out and socialise to helping them to remain at home, avoiding residential care.
