Hot desking in the hub means BOSH can offer a space within the popular location for professionals and additional services to set up for alloted time slots, gaining sometimes difficult access to clients in a safe and professional environment.
Partner agencies are extremely important to BOSH, collaborating across a wide range of services, charities and governmental departments are key to functionally assisting those on the streets.
Taking an holistic approach, encompassing mental health support, financial support, housing and legal advice through to probationary matters or therapies, when we advocate for clients we ensure to bring together all relevant parties in aim of best achieving success.
Advocacy involves individually tailored support to people who fear being treated with a lack of dignity and respect, and who feel disempowerment over choices and decision making.
BOSH support is available to accompany people to appointments, assist with housing applications, benefits, registering with a GP, dentist and generally accessing additional services.
Service user inclusion is vital to the development and continued growth of our project, and we hold regular meetings to find out how we can improve our services.
