In his Chairman’s report, Dr. Peter Elton, Director of Public Health for NHS Bury said ‘I am delighted that Outreach has been able to continue to improve the support we give to our service users whilst remaining in financial balance. It is the quality of our services that has made Outreach attractive to the Local Authorities as they have placed more residents with us.’
I hope to bring my expertise in property to the organization. ‘This is an amazing opportunity to give me an insight into housing provision for people with learning disability long term mental health needs, and help raise the bar in the future’
David Raynes, my brother and Outreach Service User, said ‘I am really really proud of my big sister that she is getting involved. Really proud and happy’
At the AGM we also heard from John Boyington CBE, Managing Director NE Manchester (Incorporating NHS Bury, NHS Heywood, Middleton & Rochdale and NHS Oldham)
Outreach is a voluntary organization that is registered with the Charity Commission. We were established in 1977 after parents/carers identified that there was a need.
We provide indiviualised Residential and Community services for Jewish and non-Jewish adults with learning disabilities and/or long term mental health needs.
Outreach have a Domiciliary registered Community Support Team and elen Residential Services within Prestwich and outlying areas, which encourages ordinary living and community involvement with mainstream community.
People within Outreach’s care are encouraged to develop independent living skills (according to their ability) and receive support from our staff to facilitate this.
