Twenty-six-year-old Steven was referred to the Routes to Work Specialist Advisor Service via our partner, Access to Industry. Homeless and originally from Glasgow, North Lanarkshire Council Housing Support Service found him accommodation in Airdrie.
With no family and friends locally, Steven felt increasingly isolated and alone – and he had had been prescribed medication for depression.
A Routes to Work caseworker had regular contact with Steven to ensure his progress was closely monitored while finding a route for him into potential training and work. The caseworker worked with a Routes to Work Skills Facilitator who compiled a personal pre-employability course of CV building and Skills interventions.
