What we do

Bridges makes person-centred self-management support a reality by enabling healthcare teams to think and work differently.

We are continually inspired by the skills, ideas and experiences of everyone using and working within health and social care.

  • Our pioneering 5-stage approach to training has a strong evidence base. We have worked with more than 350 healthcare teams, 4500 practitioners and 120 patients, family members and carers since 2013.
  • We foster real cultural change in health and social care by creating a shared ethos of self-management support in a team’s language, systems and processes.
  • Bridges approach to self-management is tailored to each patient,  and combines easily with current practice without the need for more resources.

Our self-management tools have been co-designed with people with acute and long term conditions.


  • Bridges is a social enterprise that exists to make a difference to the lives of people who live with acute and long-term conditions, by working with teams from health, social care and the third sector, to define and deliver best practice in self-management support.
