Information Sharing Across County Durham
Your Service Provider is changing
We would firstly like to introduce ourselves to you. We are CGL, change, grow live and would like to inform you that from the 1st of June 2017, County Durham Drug and Alcohol Services have transferred from Lifeline Project over to ourselves.
As you may be aware, Lifeline has been experiencing significant financial difficulties over the past few months. This has culminated in a position where in order to safeguard service provision, particularly for service users and to look after the interests of staff; Lifeline approached CGL to assist in a process that would ensure that service continuity occurred.
In agreement with DCC Local Authority commissioners, from 1 June 2017, CGL have taken over the operation of County Durham’s Drug and Alcohol Services formally provided by Lifeline and the employment of all Lifeline staff.
Our key message is that throughout the transfer process, Stakeholders, Referrers and Service Users can expect the same level of treatment and care and we will continue to deliver all services consistently with minimal disruption.
Change, grow, live is one of the largest social care and health charities
in England and Wales. We strive to innovate and develop new approaches to
service delivery that offer service users the best possible opportunity to
change their lives.
All our services are designed to encourage individuals to find strength and
resources within themselves and the community to bring about the life and
behavioral changes they wish to achieve.
Change, grow, live work in partnership with a large range of agencies to provide comprehensive services that meet the full range of our service user’s needs and prioritise partnership as a means of developing support networks through the community. With this in mind we look forward to working closely with you over the coming weeks and months.
