The Community Support Team has been a long term passion for of one of our directors. They wanted to set up a community team that provided support to children and young people and give something in return to the local community. They also felt strongly that there should not be large profits made from others misfortune and circumstance. Following working for a number of private companies they decided to find like minded professionals that had the same passion and beliefs.
Our other director has had a long and successful history of working within the Community Interest Company field, setting up this CIC in 2012. They have provided a number of training and support programs to various sections of the community from young people to the elderly. They have had great success in applying for grants and funding for specific targeted support programs and we aim to continue working with our partners to provide these support packages where identified.
The Community Support Team has been set up to provide bespoke care and support packages within the education, health and social service sectors, working closely with local authorities, educational establishments and social workers to ensure the best outcomes are provided for each young person and their families and carers.
A holistic approach is used to look at the wider effects on how the support can help all of those around the young person and the wider community.
