The Plus Partnership brings together Furniture Plus and Fife Council's Communities and Neighbourhoods Team with the hope of increasing access and support to local individuals and families in the Levenmouth area in relation to household assistance.
Furtniture Plus have developed The Plus Partnership projects which has included the addition of a Support Worker to their team, with the focus of providing ongoing holistic case management and community-based welfare support to people in Levenmouth who are identified as being in material deprivation.
Through using this approach, they believe they can work with community members to seek to address more fundamental issues and barriers which leave people in a position where goods, foods, and practical items are required to manage day-to-day living.
Welfare support will be offered to individuals and families to build resilience and reduce reliance on crisis interventions. Support will be offered in a variety of forms including, but not limited to, 1-2-1s, groupwork, drop-in, and outreach. Support will involve income maximisation, barrier removal, and will aim to bring about positive change and encourage households to reach their potential through direct support and joint work with local specialist agencies where appropriate.
Furniture Plus are aiming to achieve an increased resilience in those engaging with support, and a decrease in the number of local people accessing crisis interventions:
Evidence financial gains associated with the project and demonstrate a monetary vaulue
Capture participation and engagement with the project and monitor activities, outcomes, and progression achieved by participants
Organisations delivering work around the theme of household assistance will report an increase in partnership working, be able to share the benefits of this, and be co-designing community access and sustainable future delivery.
