We have two teams operating in Scarborough. Our Domestic Abuse Service works in close collaboration with the Police, housing, health, Social Services and other relevant agencies, offering an holistic approach for customers dealing with the effects of domestic abuse. We also provide a range of innovative services for 94 customers including: young people, ex-offenders and perpetrators of domestic abuse in the local area
We provide support to 34 ex-offenders in Scarborough offering intensive resettlement and accommodation for offenders who are assessed as being a greater risk to the community. We work in partnership with the North East Probation service and Humberside Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire community rehabilitation company (HLNY CRC) providing offenders with the foundations to help them reduce their offending behaviour and the wider impact this has on the community. In partnership with the National Offender Manager Service we provide a Housing Adviser to work within the probation team in Scarborough. This worker supports all Offender Managers and their customers and ensures referrals are made to the most appropriate agencies. Our wider North Yorkshire RACS scheme also operates within the Scarborough team. We support higher risk offenders (Tier 3 and MAPPA managed customers).
We offer a multi agency initiative (Making Safe) which works with perpetrators charged with domestic abuse, addressing tenancy issues and finding suitable accommodation away from the victims. Our housing support workers address behavioural beliefs as part of a structured support plan.
The young person’s team has 46 units of accommodation plus 8 floating support.
The HUB offers universal support and advice on housing related issues to all young people aged 16-25 years.
For those at risk of homelessness, the service offers advice and reconnection to help young people remain in/return to their home or make alternative suitable living arrangements with family or friends.
Where this isn’t successful, young people who require more intensive support will be supported to access supported accommodation.
Pathway 1 Offers support to try to help young people to return home or find suitable living arrangements. Emergency accommodation may be provided with a host for up to two weeks.
Pathway 2 Offers longer-term support where young people have been unable to return home. Support required will be determined following assessment of need and may include generic floating support without accommodation, or more intensive support with accommodation for up to two years.
The HUB works with 16-25 with additional vulnerabilities. Additional support from children and families services may be available for young with such vulnerabilities such as: Learning difficulties/disabilities, Substance misuse/mental health considerations, Care Leavers, Young offenders, Pregnant young people or young parents, their partners and families.
We offer practical and emotional support to all victims of domestic abuse, regardless of their gender, and their children throughout Scarborough. Working in close collaboration with Police, housing, health, Social Services and other local agencies, offering an holistic approach to dealing with both the immediate impact and the long term effects of domestic abuse. We have 10 places available through our refuge accommodation scheme, to both people in the local area and those fleeing from other parts of the UK. This is secure dispersed housing alongside 50 units of support available to people living in their own properties throughout the area. Our service contributes to a multi agency initiative in Scarborough that provides positive intervention to incidents of domestic abuse. The scheme offers support to both female and male victims and their families, with an emphasis on enabling the victims to remain in their own home in safety.
