Caseworkers give women one-to-one support to take steps to improve their quality of life. They help women take ownership of their lives, identify the changes they want to make and then achieve these goals. Alongside partner services in Bristol and beyond they offer flexible, seamless support.
They first assess each woman’s immediate needs – such as securing a safe place to live – and then meet regularly to work on achieving their longer-term goals: rehabilitation from drugs, freedom from the streets or rebuilding relationships with safe family members. Referrals for casework support can come from anywhere: outreach, drop-in, other support agencies and of course self-referrals.
