Community Access Team (CAT)

Community Access Team (CAT)

The Community Access Team provides support to people with long term and chronic mental health problems, assisting them to reconnect with their communities and access leisure, hobbies, education, training and volunteering.

The team aims provide a friendly person-centred service, enabling individuals to recognise their strengths, abilities and gain new skills or experiences.

The team provide one-to-one support as well as group activities including social groups, wellbeing groups and craft/activity groups. The team also provide preventative workshops/drop-in in the community.

An Employment Resource Worker also sits within the Community Access Team. This role provides support in

  • retention work for clients currently in employment, and
  • to support individuals with mental health problems identifying and accessing employment opportunities.

What happens if I'm referred?

Following a referral to the Community Access Team, you will be allocated a keyworker who will meet with you and the person who has referred you, if appropriate.

Your keyworker will explain the type of service we provide, how we work, what you can expect and then you can decide whether or not you feel this is the right service for you.

Following the initial meeting, future meetings take place in the community, at a venue mutually agreed between you and your keyworker. The idea is for you and your keyworker to get to know each other, identify your goals and provide support to help you achieve those.

Support levels will be jointly agreed with the focus on maximising independence.

What we offer

We provide a friendly person centred service, enabling you to recognise your strengths, abilities and gain new skills or experiences.
