Within Inverclyde there are six RSL’s, three of which are national providers which operate specialist housing for disability and older people. There was a lack of a cohesive approach to implementing the local housing strategy across the CHCP therefore dedicated OT time was sought to develop closer working and appropriate processes.
Reviewing and refining processes across services and organisations. Influencing choice based letting to ensure that those who have difficulty engaging with the bidding processes were supported. Working with RSL’s to influence housing allocations and adaptations, and to carry out site surveys to ensure appropriate allocations for those with complex housing needs. Strengthening the links to allow housing colleagues access to CHCP services. Signposting RSL’s to link with 3rd sector organisations to provide social activities within sheltered housing complexes.
