Community Activity and Social Enterprise. This intervention encourages service users to become involved in long and short term community projects and challenges. These teams work on projects to benefit the community and increase individual skills and abilities. These activities are for male and female service users who would not normally have access to such experiences and helps motivate their desire to re-engage in mainstream provision and return to work.
Personal Development Mentors work alongside service users, leading them in outdoor community projects, focusing on improving core skills, learning new skills and inspiring team working, addressing problems of under-employment in this core group.
This programme is aimed at those who need additional support before joining the strategic pipeline. It offers a tailored, flexible package of support.
Partner agencies from the Inverness and Easter Ross communities can refer individuals directly to the Highland unit. Referrals can be made by email or phone through criminal justice social work, treatment and rehabilitation services such as Osprey House or Beechwood House and Ascend.
