Families struggling with abuse will receive help for parents, carers, children and young people.
There will be “One Front Door” – one helpline, open from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm, when a dedicated and specialist team will be taking calls from those in need on 0808 2800999.

It has evolved over the years, but still exists to protect and promote the good health of children and young people who are subject to health inequalities within the Bradford Metropolitan District.

Steps into Employment
Street Life Bfd

For us social action is founded on a belief in people as the agents of change. Our aim is to help people living in areas of deprivation and facing multiple and complex issues gain control over their own lives. Then to foster this self-belief to be part of bringing change in the lives of others and in their communities addressing issues they define as important.

Our work with people builds greater social capital, resilience and cohesion and sees community members affecting change for themselves. Through training and development we increase people’s voice, influence and links with services and service providers creating sustainable impacts.

Underpinning all our work is our belief that for social action to work well, it must be carried out by and with people, not on or to people. This means that at all stages of all our intervention communities are involved and retain ownership of any action.
