Social work services
 
Our professional social work team visits people in their own homes to discuss with them their needs or any social work service they may require.

As a result of our partnership with East Renfrewshire Council, our social work team can undertake community care assessments and put in place care management for those who need care in the community.

What we do for an individual depends on what is required.

It could be assistance in claiming benefits, or letting people know which benefits are available to them from government or other sources. Equally it could be short or long-term support in times of need from either a professional social worker or a trained volunteer befriender from the Volunteer Services.

We can liaise with the local authority to secure appropriate funding for long-term care either at home or in a residential or nursing home.
