Our heart: Why we do what we do…
System failure leads to marginalisation
Social and health care provision in the UK is stretched to the point individuals must reach crisis point before they are taken seriously. The system is reactive rather than preventive. Without support, these people do not know where to turn.
Isolation and deprivation create barriers
There are many reasons the people we work with are unable to access the services they need, including rural and social isolation, lack of money, physical and mental disability, and even lack of transport.
We take our services to the local community
Our approach is different. We reach out to those in need, rather than expect them to find us. It is not about changing the system, it is about empowering individuals, giving them tools to tackle loneliness and isolation. We are re-building local communities, providing a much-needed safety net.
