About Us

Jigsaw Support Scheme was set up in 2000 to help local people living in Mansfield to get the access to the support they needed to live independently at home.  Before that time, quality affordable at home support was difficult to access.  Since 2000, we’ve helped thousands of local people to remain independent at home by offering the support they need.

Jigsaw’s range of social care services are aimed at helping people in Nottinghamshire to maintain their independence and have a better quality of life.  Often older and vulnerable people find themselves in negative situations which are preventable.  That is, if they have access to the right information and support delivered at the right time, offered in a flexible, sensitive and appropriate way.  Jigsaw believes is the way forward for social care.

We’ve expanded our services to cover the whole of North Nottinghamshire and surrounding areas.   Our vision it to bring the Jigsaw way to the entire County and beyond.
