We are a nationally recognised provider of criminal justice mental health services, with over two decades of experience working across the health and criminal justice sectors within an ever-evolving landscape.
We are the single largest voluntary sector provider of court liaison and diversion services in the UK. We also deliver a range of innovative criminal justice services nationally, working alongside a range of statutory and non-statutory partners, including police and probation services, to provide services that are clinically robust, incorporate psychological approaches and are adapted to local need.
We are recognised for responding to local needs through developing strategic partnerships with statutory agencies and have developed a flexible and unique model: Pathways. In Rotherham, our Pathways service was one of six that formed part of the T2A Alliance’s three-year national Transition to Adulthood Pathway programme to deliver interventions to young adults involved with the criminal justice system. In York, this model has been adapted to support those with complex and multiple needs who frequently make contact with emergency services.
We firmly believe in the value of effective and meaningful partnership working. Successful collaboration that pools expertise from a range of diverse organisations is vital to improving the lives of the people we support. We have found time and time again that the ideas, strengths and skills of different providers working together enable us to meet our common goals much more effectively.
There has never been a greater need for forming partnerships within and beyond the voluntary sector. Current commissioning challenges call for us to think differently about the resources at our disposal and how to use these most effectively.
Having won a number of awards for our partnership working, we are firmly committed to sharing our expertise to maximise the benefit individuals get from the agencies supporting them, and to bring about positive change in the systems around them.
