Pathway social franchise

We work with the NHS to help spread and develop our successful model of enhanced care coordination for people who are homeless and other excluded groups.

We want to reach more people who will benefit from the service.

This is why we have developed a social franchise programme; to partner with more NHS providers to deliver high quality care to people who need it most. Find out more about our social franchise here.

Pathway’s mission is to improve the experience and health outcomes of people who are homeless in hospital. We work closely and collaboratively with local delivery partners to support them to do this in their hospital.

Our social franchise includes a package of support which consists of an comprehensive franchise operations manual, direct access to a central Support Team and the benefits of belonging to our network. We also share best practice, develop resources, arrange peer visits and organise network events.

All elements of Pathway’s social franchise programme, from the initial enquiry process to team set-up and development, are covered in the franchise operations manual. This online manual is a central part of the support package that we provide to all teams in our social franchise.
