Full Circle also deliver the Horizon Project in 7 areas across the county (Chelmsford, Basildon, Colchester, Tendring, Braintree, Epping and Castlepoint and Rochford). The project provides intensive support to a small cohort of individuals in each area impacted by significant multiple disadvantage (homelessness, offending and substance misuse).  Adopting a multi-agency approach to Full Circle work to:

  • Assertively engage the cohort through outreach and regular, consistent contact
  • Offer long-term and unwavering support and advocacy 
  • Ensure a collaborative and creative approach between services to achieve the best possible outcomes for the individuals involved

Based on the same model, from 1st July 2020 Full Circle have been commissioned to deliver the Vulnerable Victims Pilot.  Working alongside Adult Social Care and other key partners, a Full Circle practitioner provides intensive support to vulnerable victims in the Mid and North of the county who are either being exploited, or are identified as being at high risk of exploitation by gangs.

Full Circle also provide assessments for any Essex resident made subject to a Conditional Caution or Community Resolution in relation to their substance misuse.  Full Circle staff provide relevant harm reduction advice and will ensure onward referrals to relevant substance misuse services where appropriate.

Full Circle have a Prison Link Worker and Mental Health Prison Link Worker who track service users across the prison system and work tirelessly to ensure that anyone who is in substance misuse and/or mental health treatment in custody continues to engage in community treatment if required.
