Contact & Assessment
Responsible for supporting vulnerable long term rough sleepers (anyone who has spent 3 months or more sleeping on the streets) who are homeless. They are encouraged to meet with our Support/Development Co-ordinator for a full needs assessment and the development on a support plan which can help them to rebuild their lives and help them find accommodation.

Floating Support
Provides support for the long term rough sleepers who have been accommodated in helping them to maintain their tenancies and move onto independent living. The type of support offered includes help with social and living skills, meaningful occupation (which ranges from trips to interesting places and sources of entertainment, to work based activities like gardening and painting and decorating), arranging activities like fishing and football, encouraging clients to find suitable training courses and employment and provide help with gaining the correct benefits. This support is also given to clients who are accommodated in the two HARP hostels to help them prepare for moving into their own accommodation.
