What we do

Our approach

We combine a charitable ethos with sound business principles. Our rigorous approach means we are financially stable and operate efficiently to achieve a good return on investment for commissioners. 

Everything we do is underpinned by robust governance processes and we meet and exceed all quality and safety standards. Our business systems guarantee the quality of our services and the stability of our organisation but do not frustrate the creativity and innovation of our staff or prevent us caring passionately about what we do.

Behavioural change

Central to the delivery of our behavioural change model are evidence-based interventions that support the resolution of ambivalence and support self-efficacy and coping. We help service users achieve a lifestyle balance, focusing on unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, over or under eating, substance misuse and managing chronic health problems. Read about our approach to behavioural change.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Respect is at the heart of CGL’s values as an organisation, and the themes of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are central to everything we do. Read more about EDI at CGL.

Partnerships

We have developed valuable partnerships with providers at the forefront of treatment and recovery thinking in order to devise and implement innovative programmes and tools to support behavioural change. Read about our approach to partnership working.

Service user involvement

At CGL we have well-established processes in place to help ensure that service users have meaningful opportunities to shape and improve our services, and that they are involved in the decisions that most affect them. Find out more about service user involvement at CGL.
