I value my relationship with CCP because they are always receptive to constructive feedback and willing to innovate. At the heart of their organisation are people - whether it is their staff, their volunteers, service users or members of the community.

CCP mobilised and began operation of the Community Based Support service at a particularly difficult time, we could not have anticipated beginning this contract during a global pandemic but CCP rose to the challenge. This involved the large task of providing a seamless continuation of the existing CBS service while inducting a large cohort of staff and residents to a new organisation. The past year has not been without its hurdles but I am confident in CCP’s ability to operate this service and I look forward to our partnership and the development of this service post-COVID.

Our relationship with CCP is a mature and deep one having worked together for a number of years. I work directly with them as the Commissioner for the Community Wellbeing Service and the Know Your Patch Network for Tewkesbury. They are active partners and always willing to innovate and trial new ways of working. They are a leader in the field of social prescribing and support planning and are respected across the Health and Care Sector.
