Our Housing First approach sees those who are homeless or at risk of it being granted secure accommodation as a first step in addressing the issues that led to the situation rather than the last.
Turning Point Scotland has led the way in the introduction of the Housing First approach to homelessness in Scotland - our support services are tailored to individual's needs and see those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness being granted secure accommodation as a first step in addressing the issues that led to the situation rather than the last and being given as proof of recovery.
For those in need of support with issues relating to drugs and alcohol, mental health and more we will ensure our programme involves both access to any required specialist and medical care and also a partnership of trust with their support worker in the agreed path to recovery.
Our ambitions are high for those we help; we want everyone to reach their full potential, to become active and valued members of their community, to acquire the life skills and decision-making capabilities to lead a stable productive and fulfilling life. We will challenge, coach and encourage to help achieve this, sometimes involving the peer support of others who have shared similar personal journeys.
