St Clare’s hosts the local rough sleeper’s team which is a multi agency approach to end rough sleeping in the town. The team incorporates assertive outreach and local intelligence and pulls together resources to find, offer and implement solutions.
The team based at St Clare's, incorporates skills relating to housing advice, physical and mental well being, substance and alcohol use, income and finances, training, employability, the meaningful use of time, relationships and lifeskills.
In one to ones and in groups approaches such as Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused Therapy are used, with an eye on the cycle of change. Support is personalised and it is appreciated that people who use our service may go on a journey of experiential learning. A counselling service is available to those who are in accommodation.
St Clare’s is also home to a floating support service, supporting people in their own accommodation with their tenancy and lifeskills. while in the evenings St Clare's is also host to Alcoholics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous.
