We are a registered social enterprise based in London, UK. We offer community based,  focused support to individuals, families and communities who are experiencing life difficulties, health problems or mental health problems. We offer talking therapies, community development and social empowerment models to help people feel better, happier and lead fulfilled lives.
We also support family members, carers, friends and organisations who have a supportive role in the lives of people who are experiencing life difficulties, health problems or mental health problems.

We are drawing on the work that our directors have been accumulating over the past 10 years. The service is sensitive to:

  • The core values of human centred approaches
  • Social justice
  • Supporting enterprise and employment
  • Building socially inclusive and empowered communities
  • Culturally and socially adapted techniques
  • Supporting each client make step's forward to regaining control over their lives

We provide individual support, group programmes and workshops focused on different areas incorporating health, mental health and enterprise. We believe that our clients do not fit into our service, but rather we adapt and respond to their individual needs. We value each client and all that they bring. Our programmes and training is underpinned by community development approaches, social empowerment and psychological models. 

We offer training and consultancy from our skilled and experienced team based within different sectors of Health, Mental Health, Enterprise, Community Development, Culture and Diversity and Psychological Therapies.

Vital to our success is the support and partnerships we have. These have added valuable insight and experience to our service and we hope will continue to do so!


Our Values

  • Collaborating - on the delivery of quality programmes and projects working together with our clients and other organisations to develop new approaches and evidence based practice
  • Connecting - developing positive relationships with our clients and other organisations. Helping our clients to connect the dots and make sense of their own situation as well as re-connecting with the people around them

Communicating - supporting our clients to communicate often deep rooted issues in a safe environment while accompanying clients in a journey of self-discovery. Sharing information about our services with our clients and other organisations to empower, educate and address the stigma related to experiences of life difficulties
