From this, a plan is a developed to build their confidence in tackling in day to day issues, connect them to appropriate services and support and enable them to make informed choices moving forward. The team work collaboratively with local groups, voluntary sector organisations and statutory services, to strengthen accessibility and sustainability for the wider community.
