Is developed in line with the Scottish Government’s ending Ending Homelessness Together and our person-centred approach supports people to manage and maintain their home and thereby prevents homelessness.
Peoples’ desired outcomes change over time and support needs do not always reduce linearly. We react, adapt and adjust as people’s lives change.
Whilst each person’s support is unique, there are common themes around which people seek support to bring some consistency and stability to their lives:
- Home building, such as sourcing furniture, understanding tenancy responsibilities, and door management
- Improving finances and controlling debts, including budgeting, income maximisation and access to welfare support
- Improving physical and mental health and wellbeing
- Building positive neighbourly relationships
- Planning for the future, including increasing circles of support and seeking sustainable employment
We aim to…
We achieve this by…
Identifying goals with each person and adopting a “do with” method, rather than “do for”; workers model a task or undertake tasks alongside the person, enabling them to learn how to do things safely and independently.
We are tenacious and do not give up on people.
Our specially trained practitioners have considerable experience and skills in developing strong support relationships, breaking down barriers and positively persisting with people to ensure they are informed, engaged and active citizens in their home and community.
