What we do

YOU provides services to support those with mental health issues and disabilities, however sometimes they overlap, which is where our Social Care Services come in. These services support those in need who would like to connect to their local community, therefore these services work alongside individuals and their circles of support in order to build their confidence and their independence so that individuals can live the life they want to.
