There are many independent support groups and associations locally and nationally, also locally procured agencies who deliver the statutory obligation of support to carers on behalf of the local authority.
HOPELINKs however, structure their services and support directly to carers and families via a combination of specific targeted projects that include social networks and community involvement. The past years of being a forward focussed organisation we have assessed the current services available and identified the gaps in provision, therefore our future services have been based on that research.
Our services are developed around our central proposition of Carers in the Community. The primary outcome is to support, encourage and empower individuals to better manage their condition and their situation, following that point of engagement they will be supported and guided into their respective communities to continue development should they desire.
Our program acts as support structure to ensure communities are more self-directed, informed and empowered to better manage theirs or other’s challenges.
Provide ‘1st Point of Contact’ a low-level telephone support for those experiencing differing aspects of their own behaviour prior to becoming more habitual and increasing in severity.
