Nacro – Flintshire Doorstop Project
Nacro Flintshire Doorstop project works with people who may have or has experienced substance / alcohol misuse. Flintshire Doorstop is a temporary supported housing scheme for people 18+ who are homeless and require tenancy support and support to overcome their substance / alcohol misuse issues. Tenancies are temporary with Clwyd Alyn Housing and Nacro offer floating support, individuals must engage with Nacro at least twice a week in order to maintain their tenancy.
Referrals come through Flintshire Single Access Route and are generally from Community Drug and Alcohol Service or Arch Initiatives however we will accept referrals from Flintshire Housing Options, CAIS and Probation as long as they are eligible for the project. Individuals must be motivated and committed to working with all agencies.
The aims of the project are to support individuals to maintain their tenancy whilst working through their action plans and empowering them to develop the skills to live independently. Once individuals are equipped with these skills and have completed their action plans they will be supported to move on to permanent accommodation. We work closely with Flintshire Supporting People, Clwyd Alyn Housing, Arch Initiatives and Community Drug and Alcohol Team.
