About Us

We are committed to providing holistic and personalised solutions for those looking to manage their care and support needs.

Our goal is to enable disabled children, adults and older people to access chosen activities and support to live quality lives; whether this be making new friends, finding a hobby, or recruiting a personal assistant (PA), our approach focuses on bringing people and communities together.

Our services include support planning and brokerage, personal assistant recruitment and employer support, as well as payroll and account management services. These are available to people in receipt of a personal budget, personal health budget or self-funding their care and support.

The LinkMeUp team has a wide range of knowledge and expertise enabling them to support and empower others to take control of their lives; over 80% of our team have personal experience of being a disabled person or carer for a relative and collectively we have been involved in the delivery of care provision, advocacy, disability equality training as well as payroll and finance services.

LinkMeUp is a project from Vibrance; established since 1989 we exist to support vulnerable people to lead their lives as they wish and to challenge barriers that prevent individual choice and fulfilment. For more information on Vibrance please visit our site.
