The cohort will be people over the age of 16 who have vulnerabilities and support needs that may impact on their ability to live independently and who may, without support, be at increased risk of homelessness due to their disabilities, vulnerabilities, issues or lifestyle factors that increase this risk. They are, for example, people who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless or with a history of repeat homelessness, offenders, people with mental health problems, learning disabilities, those that abuse substances, those at risk of domestic abuse, care leavers or young people at risk including young parents, refugees.
The project will address issues including drug and alcohol dependency, older age, homelessness and disability; factors which can contribute towards a person’s ability to successfully live independently.
The service will provide support with areas of people’s lives which are affecting their health and wellbeing such as domestic violence, substance misuse and offending behaviour.
By helping beneficiaries to access suitable accommodation and supporting them over a period of time to maintain their tenancy, they will experience positive outcomes such as improved health and wellbeing, increased income, reductions in offending behaviour, and improved access to services. Support will also be provided, where appropriate, to access education and employment which are key to achieving active citizenship, economic and social wellbeing.
INDIGO data are shared for research and policy analysis purposes. INDIGO data can be used to support a range of insights, for example, to understand the social outcomes that projects aim to improve, the network of organisations across projects, trends, scales, timelines and summary information. The collaborative system by which we collect, process, and share data is designed to advance data-sharing norms, harmonise data definitions and improve data use. These data are NOT shared for auditing, investment, or legal purposes. Please independently verify any data that you might use in decision making. We provide no guarantees or assurances as to the quality of these data. Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise. Help us improve our data quality: email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have data on new projects, changes or performance updates on current projects, clarifications or corrections on our data, and/or confidentiality or sensitivity notices. Please also give input via the INDIGO Data Definitions Improvement Tool and INDIGO Feedback Questionnaire.
