Emergency Accommodation & Housing
The aim is that individuals live at these resettlement services for a period of 6 to 24 months prior to achieving their own permanent home.
Each person has an Occupancy Agreement and is responsible for rent and Council Tax payments as well as for other regular household costs – fuel, food etc. The services enable individuals to develop the confidence and skills that are necessary to maintain their own homes in the future.
"In my role as a social worker in NW Glasgow, formulating care plans for vulnerable adults that have been referred under Adult Support and Protection legislation, Aspire have been a highly reliable and truly inspiring service provider. They are reactive and responsive to emergency situations, carrying out assessment visits and commencing services quickly. They have supported vulnerable adults to make literally life-saving changes, addressing underlying causes that have been supressed for years for the situation people have found themselves in. This along with attending to practical tasks and social support, delivered sensitively and tailored to each individual, by either staffing one to one, group or supporting clients to access other local resources, has given people real hope for the future."

"I was feeling so down and didn’t know anything when I first became homeless and came to the service. The staff in the service where so lovely and supported me in everyway. They supported me well and I felt at home in the service.
I didn’t want to leave even though I had been given my own tenancy.
Even when I moved to my own house the staff continued to support me. They helped me with household items while I waited on my welfare fund coming through. This helped me settle into my new home and I cannot thank staff and Helen enough for this. I know that if I need them I can call or come by the service and I will always feel welcome."
