Enhanced Framework Community Justice

The Aberdeen Enhanced Framework Service is a Housing Support Service centered on helping people to maintain or improve their quality of life.

It provides individuals with personal and housing support in various aspects of their lives. This can enable them to have meaningful and positive involvement and participation in their local communities. This service can be provided for up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, helping the Supported Person to become empowered and skilled to undertake tasks for themselves. We assist people to live as independently as possible and the hours of support will be tailored to suit the needs of the individual.

Individuals referred to the service for support will have a forensic background and may have a learning disability. The service can be provided on either a short or long-term basis. Referrals will generally be made by Social Work Departments, but can be received from other partners.

Support plans and weekly planners will be developed with the Supported Person to maximise their participation in a variety of activities. This can help build confidence, increase social skills and improve education, training or employability prospects. In short, the Supported Person will be at the heart of all we do with them and will truly be engaged in shaping their futures.

Amongst the outcomes identified for the service, we aim to:

  • Help Supported People to maximise their potential and live independently at home or in a homely setting
  • Ensure Supported People will have positive experiences, influence their own futures and be treated with dignity and respect
  • Keep Supported People safe from harm
  • Assist Supported People to experience positive relationships and an improved sense of health and wellbeing
  • Reduce health and social inequalities
