WE BELIEVE
THAT IF NOTHING CHANGES,
NOTHING CHANGES.

That’s why RESTART works with those with a history
of offending to find new pathways out of harmful patterns of behaviour

HOW IT WORKS

ASSESSMENT

Assessments are carried out over the phone or face to face with a member of the Restart team.

MOVING IN

Once eligibility for supported housing is confirmed, the client is matched with a house and a housemate.

GOALS

The support team work with the client using an Outcome Star to identify goals, creating an individual care plan.

ENGAGEMENT

The client actively follows their plan and engages with their support worker to achieve their set objectives.

MOVING ON

Clients are supported to gain employment and qualifications, to take on independent tenancies and to rebuild family and community relationships.
