Our partners

Partnerships are central to the work of Connection Support at every level.

Every piece of support work

All of the work we do to support people involves partnerships with a range of health, housing and social care professionals involving advocacy, brokerage and challenge to ensure the best possible outcomes for Service Users.

Every Project

Every Connection Support Project is a partnership between Commissioners, Connection Support and Service Users.   Connection Support prides itself on this partnership approach with very positive feedback from Commissioners on our ability to

Set up new projects in line with the vision of Commissioners and Service Users.
Remodel projects with Service User input including positive management of reduced resources.

“From the Chief Exec down, I have a huge respect for the work and professionalism of Connections staff, and their openness and engagement in communication”  -Commissioner
