The team carries out early morning and late night outreach to identify and verify people who are actively rough sleeping and work with them to develop a support plan to tackle any underlying barriers to accomodation.
This can range from providing food and clothing, helping someone to complete applications, obtaining identification, supporting emotional and mental wellbeing, physical health, practical skills, budgeting, support with any substance misuse.
The team undertake street triage and complete detailed needs assessments putting the person at the centre of their reconnection and work as intensively as is needed and also deliver in reach support when someone moves into accommodation.
We can only work with people if they are willing to work with us, but recognise that for some people this can be small steps. Permalink
