Outliers Project and Bexley Integrated Offender Management (IOM)
This small team based at our head office in Camberwell work with vulnerable adults and high risk offenders with multiple and complex needs. These include repeat offending histories, rough sleeping and inability to sustain tenancies, mental health needs and long-term problems with substance misuse. Many have disengaged from or are barred from using other services. This is where Outliers comes in through offering intensive support and advocacy through working in close partnership with other service providers. The aim is to put in place a package of support for the individuals helped through Outliers, help them achieve stability and reduce their offending. The project works with individuals across London
Our partnership with with Bexley Integrated Offender Management supports high risk and repeat offenders in this borough through offering intensive support to help stabilise their lives and improve their resettlement prospects. This element of the project is only open to referrals from partner agencies.
How St Giles Trust works in partnership with health providers
We provide a number of services we believe can support the NHS in meeting one of its key objectives – improving people’s quality of life through Making Every Contact Count.
Our peer training programme is highly effective at engaging some of the most vulnerable people facing multiple barriers preventing them from leading positive and healthy lifestyles. Many of these will be familiar to health services and often this group pose significant challenges for busy frontline staff.
Supporting Young Victims of Youth Violence and Sexual Violence
Based in the Major Trauma Centre (MTC) at the Royal London Hospital as part of our SOS Project, our staff work with young people who are admitted to the Centre as victims of weapons violence. Their work starts when patients are brought into the Centre and continues once the young people have been discharged. Support is wide-ranging and typically involves helping young people with housing and accessing skills, training and employment opportunities.
It aims to turn their lives away from gangs and the violence that comes with the lifestyle and thus reduces the likelihood of re-admission.
Providing Homeless Patients with Advice and Support
Working as part of the Kings Health Partnership Pathway Team, our staff work across the Partner Hospitals in South London. They aim to improve the quality of care for both homeless patients admitted to A&E and patients with mental health issues who are facing discharge from one of the hospitals. Working closely with clinical teams, they help to smooth the process of transition into housing and other support services from discharge.
We are pleased to be working in partnership with the following organisations in providing these services :
Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Guys and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust
Barts Health NHS Foundation Trust
South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
