During the last quarter of the year we entered negotiations on the transfer of undertaking of the Connect Stabilisation Programme. This exciting programme was formally housed in TURAS but as their service delivery core focus had moved away to target 18-25yr old group, it was felt the Connect Programme was more suited to fitting in with IBCAT’s low threshold approach.

Connect offers 3 x 16-week Stabilisation Programme running four-days per week:

The stabilisation programme is based on three core deliver areas:

  1. Drug & Alcohol Interventions
  2. Personal Development
  3. Progression

We will in 2017 be carrying out a full review of the programme and reinvigorate a much needed Task Force wide resource.
