Welcome to Better Pathways

Better Pathways has been supporting people to improve their mental health since 1963. We exist to help and inspire the people we work with to believe in themselves and to achieve their full potential. We do this through our education, training, volunteering and employment programmes and through our social enterprise.

What we do:

Better Pathways is a charity supporting people with poor mental health, learning difficulties and with disabilities, on their pathway to recovery and well-being. We work with local care partners to ensure that those needing our support receive it when, where and how they need it. We provide a range of education, training, volunteering and employment opportunities to people in our local communities: across Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull. We also deliver a therapeutic work programme through our packing and assembly social enterprise. We use a person-centred approach so that our clients are equal partners in the design, planning and delivery of the services they receive.

What our social enterprise customers say about us

Since 2009 Marlux has worked with Better Pathways, who undertake ultrasonic welding and light engineering work for us as well as packing and assembly. They are price competitive and very service-oriented…… We’re very happy with the great partnership we’ve have. Long may it continue.

For more than 5 years Lyreco have worked with Better Pathways who assemble our “prison pack” which is given to every newly-released prisoner in the UK. As a responsible partner in your day-to-day life, at Lyreco we are delighted with the partnership with Better Pathways because we share the same social responsibility to improve society.
