Turning Point Scotland Angus is available to provide support to individuals with a variety of support needs including learning disability, autism, mental health issues and community justice.  We provide supported living services, housing support and day opportunities to promote independence and choice to individuals to enable them to access everyday life experiences including access to education, employment and social activities.  We will also provide support with developing relationships and maintaining a home.  We work in partnership with service users, their families, health teams, social work teams and advocates in Angus and Dundee.

The service works in partnership with Angus Council social work departments to provide support throughout Angus.

What we do

Each of the people we support has a key worker who works with them and other significant people including families, advocacy, day care services to develop a person centred plan. Each plan in specific to the individual and provides fine detail into the appropriate support that is provided for each person.

Through support plans service users will be supported in areas such as:

  • Personal care skills
  • Health (physical and mental wellbeing)
  • Day support services including leisure activities
  • Relationships and family contact
  • Budgeting and support to manage finances
  • Employment, work experience or voluntary placements
  • Achieving outcomes
  • Attending college
  • Holidays

Support to individuals is provided by staff teams working across the service from a few hours a day to full 24 hour support. The amount of support provided varies depending on the needs of the individual and is agreed with Care Management teams and the individual.

Additionally we work with other providers to enhance the lives of the people we support.
