We do this by: -

  • Improving access to services and breaking barriers by facilitating the voice and representation of those with lived experience
  • Delivering direct services supporting people to be healthy, happy and living as part of the wider community
  • Creating sustainable models of peer support
  • Delivering a range of quality training and personal development opportunities
  • Promoting social inclusion and equality
  • Providing high quality, locally focused independent advocacy
