are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

Turning Point Scotland Glasgow Housing First

The Housing First Project was established in spring 2010 and is based upon the Housing First model developed and implemented in the United States as a method for reducing and preventing chronic homelessness. The premise of Housing First is that housing is a basic human right and is an integral part of a holistic support package offered to individuals.

Housing First is designed for individuals over 18 years of age who are homeless and have complex needs. The individual will be striving to gain independent living, but requires housing support. As well as housing support staff will provide support on the maintenance of a tenancy, addiction, mental health, social inclusion, life skills and employability. The service will also promote harm reduction and relapse prevention.

The service users are supported Mon to Sat with the service staffed from 9am to 7.30pm.The service is person centred with the individual choosing their priorities in their recovery with support from the relevant voluntary and statutory agencies.

Homelessness and Prevention

Turning Point Scotland is the biggest provider of services to people experiencing or at risk of Homelessness across Scotland, delivering support to around 2000 individuals on any given day, 4500 per year.

We provide support to people who are;

• Experiencing Homelessness

• At risk of Homelessness; and / or

• Need some support to protect their home

Around two thirds of our work is with people who are experiencing Homelessness.

We believe a menu of options should be available to individuals to prevent, or support someone to move on from Homelessness. This ensures we use a ‘no wrong door’ approach to accessing service and behind this door, people should be met with a ‘Whole System Approach’ to support.

We deliver a range of outreach services including Housing Support (Short and Long Term / Intensive); Housing First and Crisis Support.

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.

We are also active members of the European Federation of National Organisations with the Homeless (FEANTSA) and founding Members of the Housing First Europe Hub.

We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.

Support Practitioner

  • Full time or Part time

Because People Matter - Work with Us

Turning Point Scotland is the biggest provider of services to people experiencing or at risk of Homelessness across Scotland, delivering support to around 2000 individuals on any given day, 4500 per year.

We believe that in many cases, Homelessness is entirely preventable. Where Homelessness is not or cannot be, prevented the experience should be brief and non-recurring.

We provide support to people who are;

  • Experiencing Homelessness
  • At risk of Homelessness; and / or
  • Need some support to protect their home

Around two thirds of our work is with people who are experiencing Homelessness.

We believe a menu of options should be available to individuals to prevent, or support someone to move on from Homelessness. This ensures we use a ‘no wrong door’ approach to accessing service and behind this door, people should be met with a ‘Whole System Approach’ to support.

We deliver a range of outreach services including Housing Support (Short and Long Term / Intensive); Housing First and Crisis Support.

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.

We are also active members of the European Federation of National Organisations with the Homeless (FEANTSA) and founding Members of the Housing First Europe Hub.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Flexible Outreach Homelessness Housing Support Service are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

TPS works with adults who are experiencing a range of support needs. This includes housing and homelessness, learning disability, autism, acquired brain injury, fluctuating mental health, physical disabilities, problematic alcohol and/or other drug use and involvement in the criminal justice system. We believe that people matter. We believe they are the experts on their support needs. It is for us to work creatively with them and with partners to ensure we meet those needs.

Every day we work with well over 4,000 people and every year around 8,700. We help them to address issues they are experiencing and recognise their own skills and interests.

We embed our approach to support in a framework of Citizenship. Using this we deliver a holistic approach promoting the recovery, self-determination and inclusion of people experiencing challenges in their life. And we do this through focusing on their strengths and the valuable contributions they can make to their communities. We define Citizenship as a measure of the strength of an individual’s connection to the 5 R’s of rights, responsibilities, roles, resources, and relationships that society makes available to its members.

TPS is the biggest provider of services to people experiencing or at risk of Homelessness across Scotland. We deliver support to over 2800 individuals on any given day, and over 5,100 each year. This number increases when taking into account our services accessed through Justice or Alcohol and Other Drugs funding streams.

We believe that in many cases, Homelessness is entirely preventable. It is failures in the siloed and complex systems that we have designed to protect people that stops us from achieving this. Where Homelessness is not or cannot be, prevented the experience should be short lived, and we should meet that with a psychologically informed response. A menu of options should be available to individuals to prevent, or support someone to move on from Homelessness. This ensures we use a ‘no wrong door’ approach to accessing services.

We deliver a range of service models. These include Outreach Housing Support; Outreach Housing First; Outreach Crisis Support; Supported Accommodation. In line with our Citizenship approach we have a specific focus on key areas. These are; Building on people’s strengths, skills and interests as well as meeting their needs; Connecting people to communities, people and / or places; Harm reduction and / or Recovery; and providing a Psychologically informed / Trauma informed approach.

We also deliver a range of additional services across the country. Examples include Peer Mentoring services, Community Connectors, TPS Moving Service and TPS Connects amongst many other initiatives.

We recognise the importance of animals in people’s lives and helping individuals move on from the trauma they have experienced. We are currently developing our policies and frameworks to engage with stakeholders and develop our policy and procedures to make our services as pet friendly as possible.

We are also active members of the European Federation of National Organisations with the Homeless (FEANTSA).

We provide a range of different outreach Housing support services supporting individuals with short to medium term interventions to either move on from their experience of Homelessness or prevent it happening in the first place. We also deliver longer term Housing Support often funded through personalised budgets / Self Directed Support (SDS) to meet individuals housing and wellbeing needs. We believe that Housing Support can be delivered upstream before Homelessness is even the faintest possibility, often where it is difficult to quantify the impact of our prevention work. Similarly, we see the importance of housing support to move people on from their experience of Homelessness and also any long term physical and emotional needs.

Flexible Homelessness Outreach Support Service assists people with complex needs to progress from emergency and temporary accommodation and other homeless services into place of their own.

Turning Point Scotland and Loretto Care work in partnership to offer this city wide service.

The flexible Homelessness Outreach Support Service offer an integrated needs-led holistic approach to supporting people with complex needs.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

The South Lanarkshire Alcohol & Other Drugs REACHOUT Service will work within the Alcohol & Drug Partnership to establish a service focusing on supporting people over the age of 16 with problematic alcohol & drug use through an Assertive Outreach and Intensive Case Management model.

The service model will focus on three key groups:

  • Individuals who sporadically engage therefore proving difficult to achieve desired outcomes, and
  • Individuals who partially engage where the focus is purely on medical treatment

We are committed to helping individuals begin their journey to recovery whilst utilising harm reduction approaches. Safety will be at the forefront of care delivery and we will make efforts to include families and communities in the continued growth and development of the service model to assist in reducing stigma, increase engagement and retention of individuals within the service/treatment/pathway which works best for them.

The service will operate flexibly & creatively across the whole of South Lanarkshire and will work in partnership with existing services such as CAReS teams and The Beacons etc. The service will operate 7 days a week, including evenings and public holidays.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

  • £20,972 – £21,924
  • Glasgow South
  • Closing 14th June 2023

Because People Matter - Work with Us

Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in FHOSS South are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

TPS works with adults who are experiencing a range of support needs. This includes housing and homelessness, learning disability, autism, acquired brain injury, fluctuating mental health, physical disabilities, problematic alcohol and/or other drug use and involvement in the criminal justice system. We believe that people matter. We believe they are the experts on their support needs. It is for us to work creatively with them and with partners to ensure we meet those needs.

Every day we work with well over 4,000 people and every year around 8,700. We help them to address issues they are experiencing and recognise their own skills and interests.

We embed our approach to support in a framework of Citizenship. Using this we deliver a holistic approach promoting the recovery, self-determination and inclusion of people experiencing challenges in their life. And we do this through focusing on their strengths and the valuable contributions they can make to their communities.

We define Citizenship as a measure of the strength of an individual’s connection to the 5 R’s of rights, responsibilities, roles, resources, and relationships that society makes available to its members.

TPS is the biggest provider of services to people experiencing or at risk of Homelessness across Scotland. We deliver support to over 2800 individuals on any given day, and over 5,100 each year. This number increases when taking into account our services accessed through Justice or Alcohol and Other Drugs funding streams.

We believe that in many cases, Homelessness is entirely preventable. It is failures in the siloed and complex systems that we have designed to protect people that stops us from achieving this. Where Homelessness is not or cannot be, prevented the experience should be short lived, and we should meet that with a psychologically informed response. A menu of options should be available to individuals to prevent, or support someone to move on from Homelessness. This ensures we use a ‘no wrong door’ approach to accessing services.

We deliver a range of service models. These include Outreach Housing Support; Outreach Housing First; Outreach Crisis Support; Supported Accommodation. In line with our Citizenship approach we have a specific focus on key areas. These are; Building on people’s strengths, skills and interests as well as meeting their needs; Connecting people to communities, people and / or places; Harm reduction and / or Recovery; and providing a Psychologically informed / Trauma informed approach.

We also deliver a range of additional services across the country. Examples include Peer Mentoring services, Community Connectors, TPS Moving Service and TPS Connects amongst many other initiatives.

We recognise the importance of animals in people’s lives and helping individuals move on from the trauma they have experienced. We are currently developing our policies and frameworks to engage with stakeholders and develop our policy and procedures to make our services as pet friendly as possible.

We are also active members of the European Federation of National Organisations with the Homeless (FEANTSA).

We provide a range of different outreach Housing support services supporting individuals with short to medium term interventions to either move on from their experience of Homelessness or prevent it happening in the first place. We believe that Housing Support can be delivered upstream before Homelessness is even the faintest possibility, often where it is difficult to quantify the impact of our prevention work. Similarly, we see the importance of housing support to move people on from their experience of Homelessness and also any long term physical and emotional needs.

Flexible Homelessness Outreach Support Service assists people with complex needs to progress from emergency and temporary accommodation and other homeless services into a place of their own.

Turning Point Scotland and Wheatley Care work in partnership to offer this city wide service.

The flexible Homelessness Outreach Support Service offer an integrated needs-led holistic approach to supporting people with complex needs.

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

No previous working experience is needed; full training will be provided to you. We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.

As a Support Practitioner, you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.

Service: Renfrewshire Homelessness Services

Because People Matter - Work with Us

Do you have a passion for helping vulnerable people enjoy as much fulfilment as they can and feel included in their community? If compassion, care and inclusiveness are an important part of who you are, our opportunities to work away from the routine in a demanding, challenging but emotionally rewarding role could be for you.

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Renfrewshire Homelessness Services

are looking for people like you to help provide individualised support to adults with a wide range of needs, either on an individual 1:1 basis or alongside others and as part of a team.

About TPS

TPS works with adults who are experiencing a range of support needs. This includes housing and homelessness, learning disability, autism, acquired brain injury, fluctuating mental health, physical disabilities, problematic alcohol and/or other drug use and involvement in the criminal justice system. We believe that people matter. We believe they are the experts on their support needs. It is for us to work creatively with them and with partners to ensure we meet those needs.

Every day we work with well over 4,000 people and every year around 8,700. We help them to address issues they are experiencing and recognise their own skills and interests.

We embed our approach to support in a framework of Citizenship. Using this we deliver a holistic approach promoting the recovery, self-determination and inclusion of people experiencing challenges in their life. And we do this through focusing on their strengths and the valuable contributions they can make to their communities.

We define Citizenship as a measure of the strength of an individual’s connection to the 5 R’s of rights, responsibilities, roles, resources, and relationships that society makes available to its members.

Homelessness work within TPS

TPS is the biggest provider of services to people experiencing or at risk of Homelessness across Scotland. We deliver support to over 2800 individuals on any given day, and over 5,100 each year. This number increases when taking into account our services accessed through Justice or Alcohol and Other Drugs funding streams.

We believe that in many cases, Homelessness is entirely preventable. It is failures in the siloed and complex systems that we have designed to protect people that stops us from achieving this. Where Homelessness is not or cannot be, prevented the experience should be short lived, and we should meet that with a psychologically informed response. A menu of options should be available to individuals to prevent, or support someone to move on from Homelessness. This ensures we use a ‘no wrong door’ approach to accessing services.

We deliver a range of service models. These include Outreach Housing Support; Outreach Housing First; Outreach Crisis Support; Supported Accommodation. In line with our Citizenship approach we have a specific focus on key areas. These are; Building on people’s strengths, skills and interests as well as meeting their needs; Connecting people to communities, people and / or places; Harm reduction and / or Recovery; and providing a Psychologically informed / Trauma informed approach.

We also deliver a range of additional services across the country. Examples include Peer Mentoring services, Community Connectors, TPS Moving Service and TPS Connects amongst many other initiatives.

We recognise the importance of animals in people’s lives and helping individuals move on from the trauma they have experienced. We are currently developing our policies and frameworks to engage with stakeholders and develop our policy and procedures to make our services as pet friendly as possible.

We are also active members of the European Federation of National Organisations with the Homeless (FEANTSA).

The support we provide is always person centred, we do this by involving people who know the person well, this includes family and friends, other health and Social Work professionals, Advocacy services and our own staff members.

No previous working experience is needed; full training will be provided to you. We believe having the right values of respect, compassion, inclusion and integrity is all you need to join our team! We would offer you full support in completing your application.

As a Support Practitioner, you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes in all aspects of their daily lives e.g. keeping safe, meaningful activities, community involvement, physical health, relationships, emotional health and wellbeing.
