Reconnecting Lives Program

The Reconnecting Lives Program aims to assist St Bart’s consumers to achieve long term housing success through an innovative, housing-led and person-centred approach. The program provides outreach wrap-around services to support people moving out of St Bart’s services. The program is a pilot program and is fully-funded by our supportive partner, BHP.

It has three phases of support:

Proactive Support – Weekly individual case management
Light Touch Support – Fortnightly catch ups (phone or face-to-face)
Preventative Support – Monthly check in’s and crisis assistance

At any stage, the support is flexible and able to be increased or decreased to fit individual needs.
Case Managers work with consumers to achieve individual, specified goals, including:

  • Tenancy skills – assistance in setting up and maintaining a tenancy, such as preparing for rental inspections.
  • Community and Social Connection – exploring opportunities to build social and community connections.
  • Employment assistance.
  • Transport training.
  • NDIS application assistance.
  • Budgeting and Finance goals.
  • Assistance in crisis situations.
