ACTion Lincs

P3 Charity & Addaction

 

ACTion Lincs is a Housing First project that has adopted the Assertive Treatment Community model from North America; it builds on learning from the world’s first homelessness Social Impact Bond, delivered by Greater London Authority.

Led by P3 with partners Addaction, the service is delivered by a multi-disciplinary team of link workers. Together they provide life-changing, long-term support for some of the most vulnerable people in Lincolnshire, 120 people with multiple and complex needs who are considered entrenched rough sleepers, people unable to make lasting changes as current service models do not meet the complexity of their deep-rooted needs.

Significantly, this group have spent a combined total of over 200 years sleeping outside, over the last five years.

By working together ACTion Linc's service provision is seamless, meaningful and effective. It enables people to access support, removing the complexity of referral procedures – acting as a bridge – and by following a strengths-based approach, everything is client-led, at their pace. Otherwise, many would return to homelessness.

"Now I’m with ACTion Lincs I’m looking forward to the future, I’ve got goals… I’m getting backup from P3, and I’m going to get myself sorted, I’m going to get myself a place."
