We have carried out more than 25 different research and service improvement projects since 2008,  our findings have been widely published and we've enjoyed presenting our work across the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and the US.  Take a look at our latest Impact Estimation


Primarily Bridges exists to make a difference to the lives of people who live with 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.

We have projects in stroke, traumatic brain injury, trauma and other long term conditions.

We are currently developing Bridges to be suitable for the cultural and social context of South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.

We have a number of publications relating to our research and development and have presented our work at numerous national and International conferences.
