Mitre House Project is a small residential care home in Pollok in the south of Glasgow. It is the organisation's first established project and is currently home to 5 adults who have a learning disability, some of whom also have associated physical disabilities.

Referral Criteria

Mitre House provides a service for adults of 18 years upwards who have a learning disability. Referrals are made by local authority Care Managers using the single shared assessment process. Individuals will be invited to visit the project a number of occasions prior to moving in, to ensure that they are supported to make an informed decision about the service, the people who live there and the staff who provide the service. A period of matching and orientation is facilitated to ensure that people are supported to make informed decisions abou the service, the staff that provide the service and the nature of what the service is and can offer the person.
