We believe in giving the right response, guidance and information to people at the right time and in the right way.
We encourage and enable people to look at the community around them and find out what is already available that can benefit them. We can help strengthen these networks of support and advice.This involves us reaching out to all the other organisations, charities and community groups that are currently in Shropshire. At People2people we aim to provide this, as well as having professional social workers and occupational therapists for those people who do need more support.
Our staff are trained in person centred approaches and understand the importance of having good conversations and understanding what really matters to someone.
We aim to:
enable people to remain part of their communities, to increase or maintain their independence, live their life how they choose and to stay in control whatever the circumstances;
respond to people in ways that are right for them, quickly and effectively:
always listen and treat people with respect;Working in Partnership with Shropshire Council…..
put the person at the centre of our work, recognising people’s strengths,
actively engage in communities and work in partnership with local people and organisations;
create a working environment where energy and creativity is focused on excellence in everything we do.
