Description

The Open Door Community Outreach Service provides visiting support within the boundaries of West Lothian Council.

This project targets hard to reach young people who can at, times be untrusting of statutory services. Many have lengthy care histories and most have experienced a breakdown of family relationships. The majority are suffering from high anxiety, depression is common, confidence levels are low and there is a constant struggle to move forward positively with their lives.

The Community Outreach service can support you throughout the period that you are homeless, and link you in with community-based services where appropriate. Once the young person is offered a permanent tenancy we provide a 12-week programme of resettlement with a view that if longer-term support is still required we will link them in with an appropriate Tenancy Support Service.
