Turning Point Scotland has been providing services in Renfrewshire for adults with learning and physical disabilities living in their own homes since 2001.
Our main aim is to work in a person centred way with adults who have a learning/physical disability. We do this through:
- Providing varying levels of support to individuals living in their own homes depending on their own requirements
- Providing support to individuals who have autism
- Working in a person centred way to deliver a high quality service to all individuals
- Supporting people to become involved in employment initiatives
- Monitoring the service we provide
- Providing staff with the required training to deliver a quality service
Funding Arrangements/Staffing Structure and overall Budget
The service is funded through various local authorities and also to individuals who are in receipt of their own personalised budget or self directed supports’
The project employs a number of staff and our management structure and quality monitoring systems allow us to monitor closely the service we provide. All our staff regardless of their position receive extensive training which enables them to carry out their job to a high standard.
Service User Information
We provide support to individuals with learning and physical disabilities living in their own homes. The number of hours support that we provide varies for each individual. The majority of the service users receive 24hr support.
We provide support to individuals in their own houses. The houses vary in size, some service users have chosen to live alone and some share with others. The maximum number of service users living in a shared house is four. All service users have their own bedrooms.
Each person we support has a named worker who will co-ordinate and plan supports. This process is person centered in its approach and will involve those who have an input into the person’s life. Every aspect of support is explored and reviewed regularly. The person will always remain at the heart of the plan the aim is to facilitate achievement of peoples’ dreams and aspirations. We will support people to become more involved and take an active role in their local community.
Turning Point Scotland is committed to ensuring all staff are appropriately qualified and experienced to provide support. We have a comprehensive induction and continual professional development programme.
The services extend widely throughout Renfrewshire; Linwood, Johnstone,Bridge of Weir and Kilbarchan are just some of the areas we work in.
