Turning Point Scotland Ayr Supported Living and Transition Services
Turning Point Scotland Ayr’s Supported Living Service works in partnership with South Ayrshire Council to deliver services to people who have Learning Disabilities or on the Autistic Spectrum to live in and maintain their own tenancies. We have been successfully supporting adults in the South Ayrshire area since 2004. Each individual has a committed staff team who work together to deliver a bespoke person centred package of support to meet the person’s day to day needs with a focus on achieving agreed outcomes.
Since 2014 we have also been successfully working in partnership with South Ayrshire Council supporting young people with Learning Disabilities and individuals on the Autistic Spectrum in transition, from leaving school into community supports. Support is individually tailored to meet the person’s specific needs. Supports are community based where people are supported to become active members of their community through accessing local resources, building on skills, maintaining and developing friendships and employment opportunities and working towards agreed outcomes.
We receive referral from people who use Self Directed Support and are familiar with processes involved in financing support via Individual service funds (ISF) and Direct Payments.
Turning Point Scotland Ayr Viewpoint Service
Turning Point Scotland’s Ayr Viewpoint service is a community based social opportunities service covering South Ayrshire. This service is funded by South Ayrshire Council and has been running since 2001.
The service offers support to people with Learning Disabilities and individuals on the Autistic spectrum, to access activities in their local community, support to maintain employment, develop skills and maintain friendships by attending community based groups.
We tailor the services to meet the needs of the people we support and work on agreed outcomes to support the development of independence, confidence and self resilience.Desirable qualifications
