Our work goes beyond the individual – it focuses on families and whole communities too. We work with families to bring families closer together and to bring families closer to their communities. Our interventions are designed to stop antisocial behaviour, improve relationships and raise aspirations.
Our Stockport Targeted Prevention Alliance provides early help and preventative support for a wide range of individuals or households who may be vulnerable for any reason related to their health, wellbeing or circumstances. The service works with people and their families and/or carers who need information, advice or guidance to access housing, education, employment support and health services and community information/resources; live more independently; manage long-term conditions; improve their health and wellbeing; overcome or manage mental health issues; deal with substance misuse issues; manage mobility better; address multiple or complex needs and improve their family and community relationships.
Our Osmaston Family Project offers pre-school provision for children aged 2 to 5 years. Crèche provision (6 weeks to 5 years) is provided for all parents participating in training courses at the project which includes an accredited parenting programme, basic skills and personal and career development. An outreach family support service is also available which includes out of hours work for families.
We provide furnished properties that are of good quality for Homeless Families on a temporary basis whilst The City of Lincoln Council processes their homelessness application. All properties are furnished with the flexibility of providing family accommodation or single occupancy. This service offers flexible low levels of support according to the individual household’s need that enables them to move-on as quickly as possible into permanent or alternative accommodation. This is done through identifying the needs at referral stage in collaboration with Housing Options, the household and support worker.
Nacro Homes Agency provides a bespoke service aimed at meeting the needs of vulnerable individuals and families at the time when they need it the most. Our NHA service in Teesside which provides stable, good quality accommodation and assistance for vulnerable women and families fleeing domestic abuse identifies suitable properties and matches these with the unique requirements of each individual and family as far as is possible. For example, if children are settled within a particular school, and a move would have implications upon their well-being, especially if the family has already moved on a number of occasions, the service will support the family to secure local accommodation. If clients wish to be closer to family members, the service strives to enable this, so that clients can feel comfortable, safe and supported in their new environment. Although this may not always be possible, the service endeavours to achieve this.
