FLEXIBLE – our programmes are tailored to meet your needs and the needs of the group
ACCESSIBLE – face-to-face groups are held at a variety of local venues, with telephone, text Skype and online support between groups
SOCIABLE – all our adult and child programmes are delivered in a group setting and include fun, interactive activities for children
PSYCHOLOGICALLY INFORMED – we don’t tell you what to do, rather we’ll help you to understand how thoughts, emotions and feelings influence your decisions
EVIDENCE-BASED – our strong links to Leeds Beckett University mean all our programmes are based on the latest, cutting-edge research
