BAND

BAND has over 30 years’ experience of supporting people with lived experience of a mental health condition. We work to improve the quality of their lives using Recovery Focused Approaches. With co-production at the heart of all we do, we build close relationships with the people who come to BAND. As a result, we are able to develop services that are safe, responsive and appropriate to the people who use them.

Our support recognises each person’s individual circumstance and we work in a way that builds on people’s strengths. We support people to find solutions to challenges. BAND’s high quality services are delivered by a dedicated team of paid staff and volunteers. Many of us have lived experience ourselves and we recognise and celebrate the value that peer support brings to our work.
