Key Working

The Key Working service works with individuals who are looking to make changes to improve resilience and to achieve their goals. We use an outcome tool to help identify two or three areas which individuals wish to focus on.  Key Working partnerships are from 3 months to a maximum of 2 years.

Examples of areas we support people with:

  • Finding meaningful use of time
  • Increasing social contacts
  • Educational, vocational and leisure activities


Please note: referrals are closed until further notice, as we are currently at capacity.
