Professional Support

Clients often need in addition to Services, Advice & Guidance and Activities, more in depth support regarding;

  • Debt advice & Budgeting
  • Welfare Benefit Issues & Sanctions
  • Landlord and housing issues
  • Appeals
  • Referrals and Programme Support re Drugs/Alcohol/Mental Health
  • Referrals and Support with Education/Employment Skills/Volunteering/Work Experience
  • Repatriation
  • Trafficking

This is determined at initial holistic assessment and included as part of the individual’s Support Plan.  Progression is monitored and external agencies involved as required.  We work closely with CAB and other Debt advisory services, the DWP, Benefits Agency and Job Centres, Private and Social landlords, the Justice services, Police, Probation, Drug, Alcohol and Mental Health teams, Employers and Employment services, and the Border Agency in helping an individual deal with these issues.
