The Elderslie Project provides person centred support for 10 adults with severe to profound physical and learning disabilities. The project comprises 2 purpose built bungalows. The bungalows offer a safe and homely environment from where individuals can be supported to be respected, valued and included members of their local community.

Referral Criteria

The Elderslie Project works in partnership with Renfrewshire Council, Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health staff and other stakeholders to enable a high quality service to be provided. Referrals are made through the council’s Social Work Department.

Care Managers will contact the project and then meet with the Project Manager to discuss the Single Shared Assessment. If the person is suited to moving in, an action plan to facilitate the move will be devised detailing visits, overnight stays, meetings with families/carers and a projected moving in date. The Care Manager will also carry out a financial assessment which will detail any personal contributions to be made to the service.
