Yvonne passionately believes social innovation can have a real positive effect on people’s lives
Yvonne says “ it starts from the perspective of where the person is in their live-streams, what their goals are and what matters to them. By working holistically with people, recognising the strengths they have, and supporting them to overcome challenges has a real positive effect on their health and well-being.”
As an organisation the Pathways team focus on the whole picture. What is happening to the person biologically, psychologically and/or socially. By focusing in this way really does improve the outcomes for people as it directly deals with the root cause.
