Taking Part is an independent registered charity.
We have been established in Shropshire, including Telford and Wrekin, since 1994 and have been a registered charity since 2002.
In Telford we are a partner of the Wellbeing Independence Partnership as part of the My Choice contract. We provide information and advice on health and social care to the public of Telford.
In Shropshire we are a partner of the Advice, Advocacy and Welfare Benefits service providing independent advocacy including Care Act Advocacy to people who have health and social care needs and live in Shropshire.
As a small organisation we are very proud to have such a comprehensive reach in supporting a wide range of people in lots of different ways.
We are very pleased to be awarded the Carer Friendly Employer award by Telford & Wrekin Carers Partnership Board, as it recognises our organisation as being 'Carer Friendly' - looking after our own as well as the wider public in the county.
