ASCEND is well known in the community and we want to make sure we offer services which our community wants. To this end, our outreach programme “Involve 2 Evolve” raises awareness of who we are and what we can offer. This face-to-face work not only increases our visibility, range of courses and client base but also encourages people who feel isolated or reluctant to seek help and advice, to access our services. This service also extends to working with other community groups including local children’s centres, Oxhey Library, Northwick Day Centre, Herts Mind Network, Pitman Training Watford, JobCentrePlus, Mill End Job Club, Reed in Partnership, The Haven Centre, the Citizen’s Advice Bureau and Nine Lives Furniture Recycling project in Rickmansworth. Our outreach work also has excellent links with the local probation service, youth offending team and other local providers. For more information on this service, please phone 0208 420 1364 and ask to speak to our Outreach Worker, Jane.
