It is what it says, every adult matters! We want everyone to believe they do really have a better, brighter future ahead.
CANWe Solutions MEAM (Making Every Adult Matter) works with some of the most vulnerable people in the community who have often experienced traumatic and chaotic lifestyles and found themselves with no home and nobody to turn to. Whether residing in a house of multiple occupancy (HMO), homeless and living on the streets, or released from the prison services, these people often come with multiple needs and health issues. This is where MEAM’s team of dedicated and passionate workers comes into play and where the heart of this project lies. We take individuals wider issues such as drugs and alcohol or mental health matters and provide bespoke packages to meet their needs.
This may include helping them to manage stress and anxieties, keeping appointments, signposting and working in partnership with other agencies to ensure each individual receives the right support to help them find a place of their own with the prospect of a happy, healthy and positive future.
An essential aspect of our work is the use of an assertive outreach approach, which is characterised by flexibility around the service user’s particular needs and behaviours. We establish and maintain contact in the users own environment, whether resident in a HMO, their home or community setting of their choice, often outside of traditional business hours.
