Turning Point Scotland operates in communities across Scotland, from the larger cities and towns, to more remote or rural locations. As an organisation we recognise the unique challenges to supporting people with complex needs across different locations.
Turning Point Scotland’s Perth & Kinross service has been providing support to adults with complex needs and challenging behaviour since 2007. There are three supported projects in the city with different types of accommodation suited to individual need.
The objective of the service is to manage the risks involved in supporting the individual in the community while maximising the opportunities for improving the quality of life and participating in the community. The strength of the service is the partnership working with local agencies like health and social services to ensure the individual can lead as fulfilling and independent as life as possible but in a safe and stable environment. The aim is to work with individuals to maintain their place in the community instead of remaining in a hospital environment long term.
An important part of mental health and wellbeing is the opportunities to take part in leisure and outdoor activities and a number of individuals are on work placements. The main office in Perth has a Garden Project to promote healthy lifestyles and nutrition and provides opportunities for educational and social activities.
Turning Point Scotland makes services fit people. The type of support we provide depends on the needs of the individual. No matter where you live or what your circumstances, Turning Point Scotland aims to provide a high level of support to suit your needs.
