I-REDS (Identify, Refer, Engage, Divert, Support) is about empowering communities by establishing a solid foundation to support those most at risk and in need within your community.
The IREDS principles can be applied to several business areas from those at risk of Child Criminal Exploitation, Sexual Exploitation, if you are from the UK CountyLines and gang exploitation to rough sleepers and those people with complex needs.
It’s similar to building a pyramid, once the base is sufficiently wide you can elevate to the top. By creating a solid system’s base you, your colleagues and partners will be able to provide support for as long as the client journey may take.
We provide you with a menu of system options so you can build your own solution tailored to your needs, that can evolve over time.
Creating the IREDS Pyramid and following the IREDS Methodology enables managers, strategic leads and those responsible for effective service delivery to increase the volume of support that is offered without the need for additional resources. The increased volume and cost savings although desirable aren’t really the end itself but rather the means of getting your communities in shape in order for individuals and families who are at risk or with complex needs to become empowered and ultimately stronger.
