We listen to the experiences of local people and see what is working well and where things could improve.
The National Health Service (NHS) works hard to treat everyone properly and promptly and the majority of people who use the health service are happy with their treatment. However, sometimes things can go wrong or you may be unhappy about certain parts of your treatment.
If you live in Stockton-on-Tees and have a complaint about NHS services, our free advocacy service can guide you through making a complaint by providing you with practical support, advice and information.
Step Forward Tees Valley supports local people to overcome the complex reasons preventing them from finding work. These barriers could include physical or mental ill health, a lack of self-confidence, a gap in skills, a conviction, or an addiction. The project helps people to build on their strengths and aspirations, using the skills and expertise of partners and local employers to achieve their goals. The project is committed to making a real and lasting change in Tees Valley.
Step Forward Tees Valley supports people across Tees Valley to take advantage of existing voluntary or employment possibilities, as well as working with local employers to create new opportunities.

As part of their investment in local projects that tackle the root causes of poverty and promote social inclusion.
