Guideposts

Guideposts is a multi-disciplinary Social Care & Mental Health network, focused first-and-foremost upon PEOPLE

Founded 1972

  • Mission statement

    Our role is to break barriers, bridge gaps and build social inclusion opportunities for those living with long term or degenerative conditions and for those who care for them. We deliver information, care and support to widen individual choice and broaden society’s perceptions. We will lead from the front when necessary and from within when appropriate. Inherently agile and flexible when responding to individual need, we drive ourselves to be innovative and collaborative in exploiting technology, developing services and securing funding. Under strong and innovative management, we have already gone some way into developing new business models and governance systems. However, in order to support and sustain this work, we must change the way that all staff and volunteers at Guideposts think of ourselves and, crucially, how we explain our work and relevance in the UK.
