Summary

The Milton Keynes Link Worker + project is a partnership between Milton Keynes Community Safety Partnership, P3 and Revolving Doors. The scheme exists to facilitate the engagement of clients with services which can maintain their long term well-being. The scheme focuses on people living in Milton Keynes who are in crisis because of a combination of mental health needs, accommodation problems, substance misuse, offending or anti-social behaviour. Link workers support clients who have traditionally struggled to engage with services to access appropriate support. To learn more about how the Link Worker + service operates, click here.

Adults facing Chronic Exclusion (ACE) Programme

Link Worker + was one of the 12 Adults Facing Chronic Exclusion (ACE) pilots. The Cabinet Office ACE Programme was a 3 year, £6million fund launched in 2006 designed to test new approaches to tacking chronic social exclusion amongst the most marginalised people in society. 12 pilots were funded across England to test out ways to improve outcomes for adults with chaotic lives and multiple needs through developing new types of intervention and changing local service provision. They are led by voluntary and public sector organisations, working in partnership with other local agencies.
