The Bridge HUB

The Bridge HUB 

Summit House Support Ltd (SHS) is a registered charity which has been operating in Dudley and Sandwell for over 21 years with an excellent reputation for delivering customer focused successful interventions.  Our mission is to empower the people we support to set their own goals and vision, realise their full potential and live free from discrimination, equipped with the confidence and skills to contribute to the communities in which they live.

Our services provide support which is specific to the needs of the individual, and the key to providing our quality service is our excellent and dedicated staff and volunteer team.

The Bridge Employment Hub is our exciting new project funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund and will run across the Sandwell and Dudley Boroughs.
