Currently, we are working in partnership with Acorn's Children Hospice and St Giles Hospice to develop the old Glebefields health centre. It will be transformed into a transition centre for young people with life limiting illnesses moving from children to adult services, to provide age appropriate care and support.

The Bridge is a Centre that supports young people's health and well-being, offering transition support into adulthood, reducing isolation, facilitating empowerment and integration to fulfil their aspiration and maximise their potential.

The centre will also be used by other children and adults in the community as they access services and support that will become available from the hub.

With medical advances this is the first time children who were diagnosed with a life threatening illness are living into adulthood. However, they continue to live with highly complex needs, we will support them to make informed choices as they consider their options and plan for the challenges and changes to their lives.
