Please note LATCH offers supported housing in local households. We do not offer an emergency service. An interview appointment is followed by a risk assessment and all being well, the application process will take a minimum of two weeks as this is dependent on the availability of Hosts and rooms in households.
Require proof of identity if possible. Applicant must attend an informal meeting at Crossroads. At the meeting the young person will be given a tour of the centre to see what support we can offer them, if both parties are happy a risk assessment will be completed. Staff will then seek relevant background information from partner agencies to ensure meaningful support can be offered.
Phone daily 9am-8.30pm - may accept referrals later in emergency. Applicant/agency completes referral form prior to interview. Require proof of ID and background information about history of homelessness, offences, etc. If referring offenders or people with substance misuse issues a referring agency risk assessment may be required.
All referrals are made by completing a SCS referral form which can be found on the access community trust website under Housing/Fife centre tab for agencies and people wishing to refer out of area. Local referrals can be made at the Marina Centre in Lowestoft, (council office) or Bridgeview. Referrals can be made at the Fife Centre prior to booking an appointment. Initial assessments and risk assessments will then be carried out to assess need and suitability.
