The MOSAIC Centre will provide a true one-stop-shop for community service provision and will incorporate all the key agencies service plans whether delivering direct from MOSAIC or from another location or indeed outreach services. Essentially MOSAIC will become the first, and last, point of call for services.

Another important function of MOSAIC is to make services more accessible and user friendly and to find, and make, synergies between service providers to enhance the delivery and experience of services. The interesting mix of agencies and organisations invoved in MOSAIC will create a really dynamic and exciting environment. This concept of Mainstreaming is at the centre of the MOSAIC ethos where all members of the community are interacting rather than accessing information and services in isolation.
