Bridges is funded by Tameside Council and led by New Charter Homes . It provides integrated community services such as an independent advocacy service, advice, support and access to community based agencies and help with housing.

It brings together the council, police, victim support and other agencies to tackle early intervention with more prevention measures and support around victims’ safety.

People can contact the Bridges service themselves if they need help on 0161 331 2552, or they can be referred by other agencies. Turning Point and homeless charity Threshold will also support Bridges.
