Bridge has formed relationships with many other local projects and organisations that have similar interests and aims. It is difficult for any one organisation to meet the all the demands of the local client group. By working closely with other agencies it is hoped that service provision can be improved.
Referrals between partners can only serve to increase the facilities available and provide a more comprehensive service, that will meet the needs of the local community.
Our partners are listed below:
CGL (S2S) Northamptonshire always aim to work as closely as possible with our colleagues at the Bridge to ensure the best possible outcomes for our service users. As the treatment and recovery service for the county S2S and Bridge work together to provide as much support for service users as we can to assist them in their recovery journey. By offering different elements to support recovery we believe we need to work side by side to allow service users to access what they need at any time in their journey.
Northampton Town Community Trust have been working in partnership with The Bridge for several years, providing football opportunities in the playing and coaching roles. They also help to organise football festivals for the players at local venues and the annual “Heads Up Football Festival” which is now a regular event on the Sixfields Calendar with teams entering from all over the Country as well as local hospitals.
The Round by Round Programme provides opportunities for adults and children to participate in a wellbeing and non-contact fitness course, designed to help participants achieve positive changes and long-lasting outcomes to their lives, not just short-term symptom relief. We work closely with the staff and volunteers at Bridge to give the people accessing our services the best possible support and work with them to achieve specific aims and realistic goals that will sustain their long-term recovery.

Bridge’s staff and volunteers are really valuable to our residents.
