Fife's new Assertive Outreach Service
The Richmond Fellowship Scotland has partnered with Kingdom Support and Care and Frontline Fife Homelessness services to develop and deliver a new service in Fife called the Assertive Outreach Service.
The service has been designed for people who are experiencing repeat homelessness and through adopting a Housing First Approach to resolving homelessness.
The support will be used flexibly to meet individual’s needs and be allocated on an outcome-based approach using a mixture of direct, digital and telephone support. The organisations are also seeking to create a range of peer support options to supplement the paid support. This will include 1:1 peer support and peer support group work.
Referrals will be taken through a referral form from existing partners, Fife Council Homelessness Officers or other professional bodies.
