At its heart is a partnership between a diverse community, a locally-rooted charitable organisation and one of the most progressive primary care health teams in the UK.

The charity work with the most vulnerable people in their community – those who are isolated, facing physical or mental ill health or who are lacking confidence, skills or qualifications.
