Next in our Customer Spotlight series we find out more about Equinox.
Who are Equinox?
Equinox exists to provide support, care and recovery to people who are challenged by exclusion, marginalisation and a range of needs for special assistance such as mental health problems and substance misuse. Equinox service users have coined the term “forgotten people” to describe the section of the population that we are providing support to, in their thousands, each year.
We operate across the South East of England, providing a range of different services that concentrate on assisting our service users to re-engage with the communities around them and to find effective strategies for dealing with the challenges facing them in their lives. These services include supported housing, outreach, street engagement and day services.
We asked Bill Puddicombe, Chief Executive at Equinox “What are the most important priorities for the organisation” here’s his response;
“Most importantly for us it’s about maintaining the services we provide to service users so focusing on what they say they find best about our services, making sure that we’re able to keep them moving towards recovery and making sure the organisation moves forward on even ground.”
