Situation

Individuals with intensely challenging, chaotic lives and complex needs who lack stability and security and whose behaviour and circumstances have left them isolated and without aspirations, qualifications or hope. These young men and women often present with life-skills gaps which prevent successful risk-management and who exhibit deep-seated negative attitudes, thoughts and behaviours.

Solution

We establish positive service user/project worker relationships addressing the knowledge and life-skills gaps which prevent successful risk management, and we build a mutual understanding of the hidden injuries and deep-seated attitudes, thoughts and behaviours which need to be addressed. Intense (up to 7 hours per week, more during crises) pre- and post-release support beginning 6-8 weeks prior to release, extending for up to two years in the community.
