Just Straight Talk

“We aim to empower people to build better lives”

Advocate

We are able to speak up for individuals and act on their behalf on a range of complex situations such as benefit assessments, appeals with agencies, statutory services, housing and health appointments.

Mentor

We provide support over a period of time to help and guide people through difficult situations, to overcome issues and barriers and change their lives for the better.

Support

We provide individual support for people facing a range of issues or who are in difficult situations. Working 1-2-1 we work with people to identify and address their main barriers, develop coping skills, improve confidence and well being

Empower

Whilst working with people to address their issues and barriers we actively support them to become stronger, more confident and gain control over their own lives.

At JST we are working from home to support people across our projects and communities. It's the safest most effective way in which we can help people.

I'm so humbled to see how people across the Black Country are connecting the dots to support those most vulnerable in our community.

Telephone support was put in place today by one of our Bridges Support Worker Staff to support a participant who stated she wasn't in a good place due to increased anxiety levels.

Using these tips we were able to support this participant to, one reduce her anxiety by going through step by step on the tip provided and two to promote her with positive thinking techniques.
