Beyond The Basics is a post-programme workstream availiable to No Wrong Door/LWPM Clients, which aims to prevent the “falling away” of support services once an individual is deemed well enough to “move on”.The workstream is broken into 3 Phases for each client, moving at a pace that suits them. The first is “Engagement” with the BTB team, second is “Progression and Development” through the workstream, with the third being “Moving Forward” into the wider community.

The Beyond the Basics Team consists of both the Beyond the Basics Worker, as well as a group of “Experts by Experience”, whose lived experience of multiple and complex needs has given them a truly unique insight into how people experiencing difficulty may best be supported. The Experts have shaped much of what we do, and consequently are largely involved in the delivery of this workstream.
