- Staff from Midland Heart, Change Grow Live, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, West Midlands Police & Birmingham City Council working together from the same base.
- Information sharing on a daily basis to provide the best responses for individuals
- Better connections and communication between on-street partners and services.
