From there AKT staff will provide support, advice and guidance to you. This could also include: - Completing benefit forms Do housing referrals Provide emergency accommodation We may also refer you into our Mentoring programme (including inter-AKT). We can only discuss potential referrals to other areas of support (if applicable), e.g. Purple Door and the carer placements. This will be discussed with you and will depend on your individual situation.
