Our annual review 2016-2017 takes a bird’s eye look at our work, and focuses on key areas that highlight our impact.

In 2016-2017 our report focuses on employment, putting people in control of their own lives, community connecting, developing person centred staff teams, leadership, strategic coproduction and postural care.

Here is an overview of the number of people we worked with:

  • We employed 19 people with lived experience; 4 people had lived experience of mental health difficulties and 15 were disabled. 11 of those individuals came from black and minority ethnic communities.

  • We worked with 87 volunteers: 48 disabled people and 26 people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, 13 individuals with no mental health or disability label.

  • We worked with 1253 disabled people and people with experience of mental health difficulties.

  • 664 of the people we worked with were under 25.

  • 727 of people we worked with were from Black and Minority ethnic communities.

  • We worked with 1477 stakeholders. This number is often higher than disabled people and people with mental health issues, as changing the hearts and minds of people in power is needed to sustain improvements in people’s lives.
