Glasgow Housing Support Services

From our office base in the East End of Glasgow we offer Housing Support Services to a number of individuals across the City of Glasgow who have their own tenancies with local Housing Associations. 

Following any referral we will work with the person purchasing our service to complete a support plan which will inform us what the individual needs support with and what they need from our staff in order to help them achieve this. 

Some of the tasks we currently support individuals with include support with personal care, support to budget and pay bills, support to maintain their tenancy and any associated tasks such as housework and arranging repairs, and supporting people to utilise resources within their local communities. 

From packages of support that range from 24/7 to a few hours a week, we use a person centred approach in how we support every individual.  Our aim is to enable those who use the service to live as independently as possible.

Referral Criteria

We accept referrals by and on behalf of adults over the age of 18.  Referrals can be made through Glasgow City Council’s Social Work Department.  Those who are in receipt of an Individual Budget or who wish to pay for their service directly can make a self-referral by phoning our Head Office on 0141 226 1610 and asking to speak to a member of The Service and Development Department.  Alternatively they can contact the Service Manager as follows

Services Offered

In full consultation with the adult for whom the service is provided and any other significant person, we will develop a person centred and Outcome Based Support Plan.  This will be reviewed at least 6 monthly or as changes occur. 

We can offer a keyworker who will be the link person to the organisation and who family members and other professionals can liaise with. 

Signposting to other agencies and services.  We can also offer support to access other community and/or health resources as identified in your Outcomes Based Support plan. 

The service is registered and regulated by the Care Inspectorate.
