Case Management and Care Planning
Case Management and Care planning are an integral part of our Programme on the SAOL Project. Case Management involves establishing and maintaining links with relevant services in order to give participants the best opportunity for progression. Every participant on the Programme will engage in our Care Planning/Case Management system. Within three months of starting on the Programme, a comprehensive assessment will be completed whereby participants identify their short, medium and long term goals. We provide the advocacy and support necessary for participants to achieve their goals.
The Personal Care Plan assessment covers the following areas:
- Family & Children
- Welfare Issues
- Court/Justice issues
- Drug stability
Throughout their time here participants are given the opportunity to re-assess, review and revise their goals if needed. There are five formal review meetings held with the participants during their two year programme - as well as informal reviews as deemed necessary.
In addition to our group based education programme we also provide a one to one service for participants. As we adopt an holistic approach to our work, we feel that it is vitally important to provide this space where participants can deal with more personal issues in a supportive setting.
Lara, our One-to-One Worker will advocate on behalf of the participant whenever this is required. The ultimate aim of the one to one work is to empower the participants to advocate on their own behalf.
