Who we can help

  • If you are resident in Wakefield or have a local connection to the Wakefield District
  • Are aged 16 or over
  • Are assessed as scoring 2 or above in the housing section and 3 or 4 in at least 4 other sections of the chaos index assessment.
  • It can be evidenced you would benefit from the longer term, intensive support available at the Complex Needs Service (for example, referral information shows you have abandoned, been excluded from or struggled to achieve outcomes in other services or temporary accommodation, or that due to levels of needs the Assessment Pathway is unlikely to be able to achieve positive outcomes within contracted timescales).
  • Have recourse to public funds such as Universal Credit (or Housing Benefit).

The referral process

  • All referrals for the Service will be received through the Council’s Single Point of Access (SPOA)
  • A referral form and chaos index assessment to be completed either by the referring party (where there is a third party) or by staff at the Single Point of Access. This will then be passed to the Pathway Coordinator and the service will contact the referred person within 3 calendar days of receiving the referral form.
