Glasgow Housing First

by Turning Point Scotland

Housing and Homelessness, Drug Addiction, Housing Support

Glasgow Housing First provides mainstream social housing and 24 hour support to individuals who are homeless, aged 18 or over and involved in drug misuse.

The service places homeless individuals directly into independent tenancies in Glasgow with no requirement to progress through transitional housing programmes. By sustaining a permanent tenancy in Glasgow, service users are in a better position to access community support, health care and social benefits.

Individuals are not required to fully abstain as this model of care focuses on reducing drug related harm. The service also works with tenants in a person centred way by offering a selection of support from which the individual can choose as they see fit.

Referrals can be made through the homelessness services in Glasgow or agencies such as the Glasgow Drug Crisis Centre, Homeless Addiction Team, Base 75 or Glasgow Street Team. Alternatively, individuals can self refer by contacting us directly.
