Home Scotland operates support services in Edinburgh, Dundee, Fife and Dumfries and Galloway. We offer community-based support in your own home. We can help you with a wide range of things including:
- budgeting and benefit maximisation
- social interaction and activities
- life skills
- dealing with agencies and other services.
We want to support you achieve what you think you need – whether that’s help to get on top of mounting bills or a hand to deal effectively with different professional agencies.
We can help you whether you own your own home or are a customer of Home Group, another housing association or council.
The support we provide offers you the chance to learn new skills and live independently.
Support is provided on a needs led basis and will be reviewed regularly.
At your first visit, we’ll talk to you about what sort of support you think you need, and what you’d like to work on. We won’t come along with a set of answers – but we’ll work with you to find out what your choices could be. We’ll then agree some goals with you to help you achieve what you want.
Everyone on our service has a support plan which they agree with us. This forms the basis of what we work on with you and it’s regularly updated with the progress you’re marking. We’ll set goals to help you get to where you want to be and review them regularly to make sure they are still right for you.
We can also signpost you to other organisations who may be able to help, where this is appropriate. That means you’ll always get the best help available, even if it’s not one of our specialist subjects.
If you think we could help you or someone you know, please get in touch and we’ll have a chat.
You can e-mail Scotlandadmin@homegroup.org.uk or contact your local team.
