Connection supports change


We work with a wide range of organisations to support their objectives of delivering change for their clients and service users, using our expertise to support people to move forward from their challenges to build a new life and fulfil their aspirations.

Our partners include local authority, health and housing service commissioners, probation services, addiction services, academia, employment providers, and other voluntary organisations.

We choose to work with organisations that share our values and commitment to helping deliver people centred, positive change that has long lasting impact on those we support and their communities.

Through the multi-agency forums we set up in in all our work, we encourage and support our team and volunteers to be involved in bringing their unique perspective into how services should be delivered locally.

CLI is also focused on using our lived experience and outcomes to help influence the wider discussions on the systems, structures and agendas around addition, homelessness, mental health and the criminal justice system and ensure these are fit for purpose.

“I’ve come such a long way since coming to CLI and have nearly gone full circle, starting out as a  service user and with time I felt confident enough to complete training to become a group volunteer,  I can honestly say this is the best thing that I have done in my life in a long time.”

 – Jason, CLI, Bedford
