Ted - a case study

TED - a case study

Our Outreach Worker has been working with Ted (not their real name) for the past 8 weeks. They first met Ted when they were conducting an early morning outreach session. Ted was sleeping rough in a tent. After checks with other services, it became apparent that Ted was not engaging with any other services. He does not like to talk to people in positions of authority and at first his engagement with us was frosty.


Although it has taken time, our Outreach Worker has been able to build up a trusting and respectful relationship and they now meet at least once a week. Sometimes they meet for a general catch up other times Ted meets our Outreach Worker for advice and support.

With support from our Outreach Worker, Ted is now in the process of making a Universal Credit application, has an active bank account and is registered with a Doctor.

With our continued support we hope to help him further with his dependencies and aim to help him obtain some form of safe and secure accommodation.
