Self-Direct Support Services
Aspire provides personalised developmental supports to people of all ages via Self Directed Support. This enables supported people and families to create a support plan that helps the people and families to be as involved in their communities as possible, living their best lives and improving quality of life for all.
Care at Home Services
Whilst we provide these services, we are working with Local Authorities to move away from the traditional time and task commissioning of these types of supports which don’t often allow for conversation or rehabilitation and can make people less independent and feel more isolated and lonely.
We believe that everyone should be supported to do the most they can for themselves, to empower and support people no matter how small the task might seem. It means a different way of investing the same monies but we believe this creates better outcomes for people and improves quality of life.
Emergency Accommodation & Housing
Aspire has provided support to people who find themselves homeless since 2002. We provide emergency homeless services and resettlement services for people across a variety of sites in Glasgow, including one of the Glasgow hotels to support people during the COVID-19 pandemic. We additionally support people who have been identified as being at risk of homelessness and help people avoid the trauma and stresses associated with having no home of their own.
Aspire is one of 7 non-statutory organisations that won the 7-10 year Alliance to End Homelessness tender in Glasgow over the next 10 years. This is a unique, ambitious and hugely exciting opportunity for statutory and non-statutory organisations to work closely together to transform homeless services across Glasgow, with a real focus on prevention. Supporting people to live their best lives. Aspire is delighted to be part of this evolving story that is being carefully watched by many across Scotland and beyond.
We have been fortunate to win many national awards over the years and are committed to ensuring we continually improve. Our driving belief is people (all people) are greater than they think they are.
Intensive Home Support Services: We provide high quality care and support to adults with a wide range of health conditions and high clinical needs within their own home. The care and support is tailored to the needs of the person and we create support plans to reflect these needs and achieve agreed outcomes.
Young Persons Service (16-25 year old care leavers): Numbers vary, but sadly around 30 – 50% of 16 - 25 year old care leavers become homeless. Aspire works closely with this group to support them into their own homes, gain and keep employment and we provide support to people with financial management, addiction and mental health issues.
