The Early Help in Custody Team provides a peer support approach of early help to people being held in police custody in Greenock police station. The Early Help Team works closely with police colleagues, while being completely independent of the justice system. Although based in Inverclyde the service will be available to people living in other local authorities who are in Greenock police custody.
The service provides short term support to people who have self-identified a need(s) in a ‘reachable and teachable’ moment to seek the help they need through a wide network of partner agencies within local communities. This 2-year test of change is funded by the Drugs Death Task Force and will prioritising people who are not receiving treatment and who may be experiencing a range of complex needs as evidence suggests they may be at highest risk of a drug related death. The service will link closely to existing treatment pathways and other tests of change including early intervention, recovery, harm reduction and non-fatal overdose.
