Our Partners Partnership working is a key feature of everything we do. Effective interagency partnership maximises the success of our work with individuals. We believe in a multi-disciplinary response to individual need. We work closely with all organisations to enhance support including Adult Social Care, Children’s Services, Police, Probation, Darlington Borough Coucil, Firststop, DWP, Harbour, CAB, Credit-Union and health providers. Through information sharing protocols and with the individual's agreement, we liaise, keep partners informed and work together in supporting individuals. Networking, sharing training/information, helps us to keep abreast of new developments. We willingly share our expertise in relation to housing-related issues. Corporate Partners We value the support of Corporate Partners.
