Til enhver tid projektet arbejder med omkring 45 familier, der omfatter i øjeblikket 33 voksne og 12 børn fra en række kulturer.
Haven works in five local authority areas (Kingston Upon Hull, East Riding, North East Lincs, North Lincs and Scarborough), supporting the Syrian resettlement programme.
- Vores praksis er at arbejde langsigtet med mange af de familier, opbygge tillid, and often dealing with a range of family problems. The most significant element of Haven’s work is that we access families who struggle to trust ‘official services’ eller som er for isoleret at nærme tjenester for at få hjælp, og på den måde kan vi tilbyde en helhedsorienteret service til disse sårbare familier.
- One of our priorities is to build trust. This has been one of the key ways that clients have increased their confidence and ability to access required services. It is also a crucial concept in delivering services to the BME community as a whole.
- When required Haven undertakes an advocacy role in partnership with clients to support them to access services they need.
- In addition, undertaking networking and collaborative strategies with partner agencies has enabled Haven to act as a bridge between informal and formal services.
