‘Outreach’ is a term that is often used but rarely defined. It applies to many policy fields, including education and health services, and essentially entails services being taken out from their normative and mainstream institutional settings and being provided in local community settings. In the welfare-to-work arena, outreach services are used to:
1. Develop the lives of the rural people
2. Engage rural communities.
3. Deliver welfare-to-work services in local settings and environments.
Outreach services may also be defined as those that draw on partnerships and networks with other service providers to deliver and promote welfare-to-work services in local communities. Outreach services can be employed to raise the profile of (more mainstream) services and inform potential communities of the provision and help that is available to them. Outreach services can also be used to reach and engage a specific group of people and those who do not tend to use mainstream services, i.e., those people who are ‘harder to reach.’ Outreach provision can then be used as a means of delivering welfare-to-work services to these communities, away from mainstream settings and in more informal and relaxed surroundings.
