Turning Point Scotland Aberdeen has two distinctive services in the city supporting people who have experienced mental health issues get back into employment, and another providing housing support to people with either mental health issues or living with a neurological condition like Huntington’s disease.
Rosie’s Social Enterprises is based in two locations in the city centre running four businesses; a cafe, framers & crafts, gift shop and wedding stationary. A number of employment placements are offered to people who have experience mental ill-health and are supported back into full time employment.
The Rosie’s brand has been developed as a social enterprise to compete in the commercial market where an emphasis on quality and value of the products and services are key to future growth. However the placements are supported to allow individuals to build up their self-confidence and skills.
Social enterprise is an ideal way to bridge the gap into the labour market but the more commercially successful the business is, the more it can grow and support more people.
The products and services are delivered to a high standard by a staff team with professional skills and experience in the design and delivery. This provides an excellent learning and skills development environment for people on placement.
The Aberdeen Housing Support Service is for people living with a mental health issue or neurological condition and offers support at the point of crisis, through to tenancy sustainment or longer term support. Support with social activities can be provided through some funding streams.
