We are commited to being an accessible and inclusive organisation and have prioritised equality, diversity and inclusion. The whole organisation has undergone training and skills development and we are embarking on some exciting work in this area.
All the work we do and services we provide address local needs. We are aware of the movement across health and social care sectors, with intergrated care systems and changes that are imminent for localities. We appriciate the ever-increasing demands on all services and the compounding issues of COVID's impact, especially on our more vulnerable population. We are a trusted organisation that is seeing a more challanging situation, which our clients are living with. Our aim is to work alongside our partners, providing the much needed early intervention and prevention services that can and will reduce the impact of these issues.
