Organisation Profile:

Elevate is one service with two routes to employability: Elevate Glasgow PSP and Recovery Employability Service. Elevate offer a person-centred approach to individuals in their employability journey.

Public Social Partnerships (PSPs) are strategic partnering arrangements, through which the public sector can collaborate with third sector organisations (voluntary, charity and social enterprise organisations) to share responsibility for designing services. A key principle of this approach is that services are designed co-productively with service users. Glasgow Council on Alcohol are the Lead Partner.

Elevate is an employability service for people in recovery from drugs/or alcohol. We are delighted that we are now able to extend the service to include aftercare provision for those in work to include those affected by poor mental health or have experience of homelessness or the criminal justice service as well as those in recovery.

Glasgow Council on Alcohol is a leading provider of alcohol support and has been providing a range of award winning services across Glasgow and surrounding areas for over 50 years and has an excellent reputation for partnership working and a proven track record of helping individuals to achieve their goals.
