Our Lincoln Complex Needs service provides supported accommodation for homeless people with complex needs, Most residents will have experienced combinations of rough sleeping, substance misuse, mental ill-health and repeat offending.
The aim of the service is to:
- reduce the level of local rough sleeping
- improve the physical and mental health of rough sleepers by enabling access to health services, including mental health and drug and alcohol treatment
- reduce the cost to health services by supporting the appropriate use of health pathways and preventing the need for high cost crisis interventions
- reduce the level of crime and anti-social behaviour including begging and street drinking by supporting rough sleepers to access benefits and positive alternatives to negative street based lifestyles
