Location

Situation

Harbour Place (HP) is in the East Marsh Ward of Grimsby; a quarter of the population within the area live in neighbourhoods which rank amongst the most deprived areas in the country. There is a history of poor parenting, high unemployment and it is recognised as nationally the worst for education and skills deprivation. HP aims to improve the health of individuals and increase opportunities for employment through engagement and empowerment of individuals who may be considered hard to reach.

Solution

HP will provide non-residential, day- to-day services for those who are classed as vulnerable and socially excluded through the provision of 1-1 support from Project Coordinators, access to a Street Outreach Worker, and befriending by 17 voluntary workers who will provide social care such as meals and personal hygiene facilities. Individuals will have access to their own action plans with a clear follow on plan after they become employment ready.
