Turning Point Scotland Renfrewshire provides a diverse range of services in the area reflecting the needs of people living there. Although offering distinctive types of support on offer in different locations in the area, they are provided with the same quality, professionalism and experience shown by Turning Point Scotland staff.

Since 2001 Turning Point Scotland has provided services for learning disabilities through care at home or housing support in Renfrewshire.

Based in Paisley, the services offer support to help individuals live an independent life, either in shared accommodation or on their own. The service works in partnership with Renfrewshire Council and Housing Associations in their own occupancy or tenancy agreement.

The services also encourage people being supported to participate in a range of social and vocational activities like attending college.

In addition Turning Point Scotland Renfrewshire has a housing support service based in Paisley that aims to help individuals that are homeless are at risk of homelessness to maintain their tenancy. By developing or enhancing skills to managing daily routine and independent living, having a tenancy will help provide stability and safety to allow them to focus on other challenges or issues in their lives.

As the reasons behind homelessness and risks of homelessness are complex, the support offered is flexible depending on the needs of the individual.

Renfrewshire Housing First provides mainstream social housing and 24 hour support to individuals who are homeless, aged 18 or over and involved in drug misuse. The service places homeless individuals directly into independent tenancies in Renfrewshire with no requirement to progress through transitional housing programmes.

Turning Point Scotland Renfrewshire also provides criminal justice services based in Paisley. There is a residential unit at Gleniffer Road for men who require an intensive short term stay to address their substance misuse, mental health issues or lack of coping skills.

For both men and women requiring support in the community, day services are available offering support to people with a history of offending behavior to address issues like substance misuse mental health, relationships or lack of coping skills.

Turning Point Scotland’s criminal justices operate in partnership with Community Justice Authorities and the Scottish Government to reduce reoffending, by addressing the underlying causes of their offending behaviour.
