Why We Are Needed

The foundations for this innovative Support Northamptonshire project were laid in 2010 when a small group of support service organisations got together to discuss the future of Supporting People funding.

In the face of public funding cuts, they wanted to explore ways of working together more efficiently to maintain and improve service delivery.

The idea behind our work is to catch people's problems early and prevent the need for more intensive care and health services further down the line.

By working in such an integrated and collaborative way, we reduce duplication and can pool our knowledge and resources to be more efficient and cost-effective, thereby improving outcomes for customers while encouraging innovative approaches to tackle challenges.
