Suite of Support

Bridge has always recognised that each client we work with has very different, individual support needs.  We don’t offer a ‘one size fits all’ programme of support but instead offer a range of services outlined in our  Suite of Support.

This provides support options that clients can mix and match to establish their own pathway into work.

The suite is outlined in the following table:
