The majority of the people who are supported by Pathway Project receive this on a 1 to 1 basis either in their own home or at an agreed safe place.
The floating support team have helped hundreds of women by providing both practical advice and emotional support. Very often practical issues can be huge obstacles when making decision about if you should end a relationship, they can appear overwhelming.
Areas where we can help include the following:
Housing options: Council, Housing Association, Private Rentals, Owned properties, Refuge etc
Income : Benefit advice/calculations, budgeting,
Debts: Advise on options available, often not as scary as you think!
Legal Options: Non molestation orders/Occupation Orders /talking to the Police/child contact
Signposting: We can be the link to help you get involved with Pathway groups, Counselling, Alcohol and drug services, family support workers etc
In addition to the above, for many people simply having someone to talk to on a regular basis helps them to realise that they are not on their own. We can listen to the difficulties faced, provide you with resources to enable you to make up your own mind based on the research material we have available. We can be on the end of the phone in times of crisis to support you through difficult times and decisions.
We support people for up to 2 years in some cases, as we recognise that there is no quick fix when dealing with delicate situations and families lives.
To access our floating support service you simply need to call our 24 hour helpline number and a referral will be made to us.
