Support is varied, and is provided to suit the individual, but can include: maintaining a home, accessing education and employment, personal care, health and wellbeing, managing money, accessing leisure activities and building domestic skills as well as building confidence and self-esteem.

No matter where you live or what your circumstances, Turning Point Scotland aims to provide a high level of support to suit your needs.
