HOW IT WORKS
Assessments are carried out over the phone or face to face with a member of the Restart team.
Once eligibility for supported housing is confirmed, the client is matched with a house and a housemate.
The support team work with the client using an Outcome Star to identify goals, creating an individual care plan.
The client actively follows their plan and engages with their support worker to achieve their set objectives.
Clients are supported to gain employment and qualifications, to take on independent tenancies and to rebuild family and community relationships.
