Our Impact

The Link was set up in 2010 to address the shortfall in service provision for children, young people and families in Redcar and Cleveland. 


Since then we have gone from strength to strength working with almost 3,000 children and young people to build their resilience.

Independent Evaluation of The Link by Stephanie Hunter


This independent evaluation of the service was conducted by Stephanie Hunter (Bio to Add)


 "Something special has developed in a run-down building in Redcar, something creative, compassionate, child-centered and warm, warm like the practitioners voices, as one social worker said "Her voice makes me feel relaxed".  Something with authentic warmth described in Cameron and Maginns (2010) model of care, practice which genuinely changes life and enriches communities".


About Us


The Link is a Community Interest Company or a CIC for short, which means we are motivated by making a positive change rather than making money.  We believe that nobody should have to face emotional distress alone, so we provide a variety of therapeutic services, activities, training and events to support children, young people and families who are facing challenges in relation to mental health.
