About Making Space

Making Space has been working in healthcare, support and enablement services for 30 years now – originally supporting people affected by mental health conditions. More recently the organisation has resolved to use all of the experience it has gained to extend its service to any group of people who are in need of care and support, including physical and/or mental health conditions and people with learning disabilities and dementia, and their carers. 


The Making Space approach to all of the people who use its services is embodied in 'personalisation’ –striving to deliver all of our services with humanity, dignity and compassion. 

Throughout England and Wales more than 1,000 people, both employees and volunteers, work for Making Space to provide the most appropriate care, support and enablement services which promote the wellbeing of people affected by physical and/or mental ill health, dementia and/or learning disabilities. These include family intervention services, rehabilitative employment and education services, supported housing, (Floating and Domiciliary support) care homes, residential accommodation, clinical services (includes Independent Hospitals), computerised cognitive behavioural therapy (CCBT) and extra care services.

Information, Advice and Guidance in workshops and training sessions are all part of the service offer made available to people’s carers whose lives are deeply affected too.

We’re proud of what we do, reflected in our strategic plan to extend our services deeper, into the communities we already serve, and wider, across the UK. This way we’re aiming to give personalised support to many more people – not just those dealing with their own physical and or mental health conditions, but the people who care for them too. It’s the kind of help we hope will allow them all to lead a more independent and fulfilling life.
