Assertive Outreach Programme

Our Assertive Outreach Programme offers services to those individuals whose circumstance are such that attending appointments at the Centre may prove difficult. Many of these people are rough sleepers and may have additional needs including alcohol misuse, drug use and/or mental health/dual diagnosis.

Our specialist worker will advise and direct on the streets or in accommodation, carry out the necessary assessments and provide guidance on engaging with appropriate services to meet individual needs around lifestyle and health.

The AOP covers the Cold Weather Provision Pilot which Light for Life has been asked to lead on for Winter 2013-2014. This is triggered when the temperature is forecast to dip below zero for three consecutive nights. The shelter is run in partnership with Lakeside Church in Southport and with support from the Area Committee, Community Fund and Voluntary Donations.

The AOP is also linked to the Christmas Shelter which provides meals, advice and support for five days over the Christmas period when other agencies are closed. The shelter has been in operation for 23 years and serves an average of 55 customers each day.
