What are Complex Needs? (continued)

We provide effective solutions for Complex Needs by providing an Individually designed package of support which provides an appropriate alternative mode of coping with the underlying pain which does not involve the use of self help treatments.  Designed to remove the underlying causes of the predisposing conditions where possible.  Designed collaboratively, after discussion, negotiation and with the agreement of the customer.  Holistic: they address all the needs, physical and psychological of the customer.  Multi dimensional: they use all the many services of BRIGHTER FUTURES itself and also refer customers to our many partners.  SMART, that is, specific (activities or targets), measurable (we include and measure frequency of  attendance etc), achievable (they are suited to the customer, not us), realistic (challenging, but  possible) and timely (they are offered in the right sequence).  Simple: these are understandable and legible pathways. 
