We work with each individual to provide person centred support aiming to get them back to independence by educating, rehabilitating, increasing confidence and self-esteem through working in our range of social enterprises. We have a structured support package that encourages progression at their pace and includes support around mental health, physical health, basic living skills, substance misuse, offending behaviour, social interactions, work experience and behavioural management. We use the Outcome Star tool to help visualise growth and identify specific areas to work on. We provide training that is appropriate for the person and their journey. We are keen to work with agencies already involved as we are a great advocate of partnership working.
