We are contracted by MSF to provide social investigation services for persons who come under the Destitute Persons Act, Chapter 78. This service aims to assess and right-site clients, determining whether admission into a welfare home is necessary or if the client can be discharged into the community with proper follow up from relevant support services.
The investigative process involves interviewing clients and their families, relatives and friends to provide an assessment of the client’s family circumstances and social support network. The purpose is to determine whether the client is a destitute and warrants admission or continued stay in a welfare home, or that the client can be discharged into the community with proper link-up to support services. A report will include recommendation and proposed plan of action for the client.
