Street outreach services
Our street outreach services work with vulnerable people who sleep rough on our streets, many of whom have additional needs including mental health problems and drug or alcohol dependencies. We work to understand the complex reasons why someone might be sleeping rough, and provide support tailored to their needs, whether that’s getting them back in touch with their family, or helping them address traumatic experiences from their past.
Support we can offer:
- Helping rough sleepers into safe and secure accommodation, and support to maintain their tenancy.
- Access to expert recovery support for those suffering from a drug or alcohol dependency.
- Access to expert medical support, including counselling and mental health services.
- Support for vulnerable women and men to exit street-based sex working.
- Education, employment and financial advice.
- Work to reduce antisocial behaviour such as begging and street-based drug and alcohol use.
Domestic abuse services
Our domestic abuse services are here to help people experiencing domestic abuse to stay safe and make informed decisions. We offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where individuals and families can explore the different options available to them. Support includes advice on how to stay safe, access to counselling and mental health services, advice on housing and finance issues and support through civil and criminal legal proceedings. Our Choices service also offers support to low and medium risk perpetrators.
