We all have a story – it’s what shapes and defines us. The Bridge is no different.
The story began when a group of local people wanted to make a difference to the everyday wellbeing of people across West Lothian. As they reflected on their own life struggles, and listened to the voices of family, friends, neighbours and colleagues, certain key themes emerged. The foundations of financial and emotional well-being were laid.
It has long been accepted that when crisis moments arrive in life for people in the West Lothian area that many are forced to access help through services elsewhere or to seek it in the private (fee-paying sector). The Bridge seeks to bring these key services and the hope they provide closer to home.
In our story, however, we seek to be different – not so much in what we do, but in how we go about providing our services. Building on the principles of compassion, grace and love we seek to share the journey with our clients in order to see lasting hope and change.
Our vision is to
“improve the everyday wellbeing of the people of West Lothian”
We aim to do this by
“providing practical and relational support to families and individuals”
