EMPOWER

 Is the overarching name for our newest service.

 

The aim is to enhance and support our current offer, with a range of services working directly with individuals to work through specific current issues and problems.

 

 Sometimes activities and events alone are just not enough. There are times when we all need a little extra help, support, guidance and information and we hope to develop this project to provide all of that.

 

The first phase of that development is now live, with the second phase still in pilot but we hope to be able to bring you that second phase very soon. 

We want this service to be relevant to you !

 

So please do take some time to fill in the survey below to help us shape the right service. 

The service is volunteer lead, you can also find out more about volunteering at the bottom of the page.
