History

History

Wirral Connect (formally Wirral CVS) was founded and registered as charity in 1991.

Over the years the organisation delivered a number of projects many of which supported people to become volunteers, for a long period it was the leading accredited volunteer centre on Wirral.

As time passed, the organisation started developing great expertise in mentoring and supporting individuals through one to one support programmes.

For eight years the organisation delivered a very successful project in supporting individuals in drug and alcohol recovery through peer mentoring. From this model we have developed our expertise further and now work with a number of different groups as we believe that mentoring is a very effective method in supporting people on a practical basis in the local community. By working individually with people and designing the support package around them we find is the best way to success.

At present the organisation is currently delivering targeted services to unpaid carers / former carers, bereaved people and individuals bereaved by suicide. 

We are committed and passionate about supporting those who support others.  By taking the time to BE with someone, to listen to their story, we are able to CONNECT!
