The Social Interest Group welcome conversations with organisations right across the health and social care spectrum. Our members and partners benefit from greater strength and development opportunities, whilst retaining their unique identity and services.

We want to talk with you about partnering with us, becoming a member of our group or developing entirely bespoke initiatives together.

You can read more here about the benefits of working together, the services we offer and the sectors we represent.

Organisations who are working with children and young people, older people, people with physical disabilities or learning disabilities, BME groups, people with housing needs, carer and family support services, are particularly welcome to get in touch about working together.

Equinox Care provides personalised support, care and recovery to people with multiple and complex needs. This includes people who experience mental ill health, drug dependence and alcohol dependence. Equinox clients may also have a history of homelessness or offending. They may have been turned away from other services, due to the complexity of their needs. Equinox assists their service users to solve or manage the issues that are relevant to their own lives, including achieving stable accommodation, recovery and independence.

The heart and soul of Equinox is providing hope without exclusion to all those who come to them.  They do this across London and in Brighton.  They recently won four new contracts in Ealing – one of which is a service run by Service Users for Service Users.

Equinox has supported almost 1,500 people in 2016/2017.
