Abstract:

The service provider will set-up, operate and manage a service that will provide accommodation for up to 38 individual service users in one designated zone within the Inner Moray Firth area. The service provider will provide short-term accommodation with support to vulnerable individuals with a key objective of resettlement.

Individuals referred to this service may be leading a chaotic lifestyle because of substance misuse or other addictions, offending or at risk of offending, because of homelessness, have been ‘looked after’ children or all of these. Individuals may also have a range of health needs e.g. mental health, learning disabilities, physical disability, etc. For clarity, we would expect the providers to assist on a day to day basis with such needs, rather than providing direct medical or therapeutic input.

The support provided will be tailored to meet the needs of each referred service user, providing those with the necessary life skills to make the most out of their lives giving them a better quality of life and to support them meet their full potential. The support will be flexible to meet the person’s changing needs, with a key aim to enable service users to sustain and maintain their current and future tenancies.
