TPS works with adults who are experiencing a range of support needs. This includes housing and homelessness, learning disability, autism, acquired brain injury, fluctuating mental health, physical disabilities, problematic alcohol and/or other drug use and involvement in the criminal justice system. We believe that people matter. We believe they are the experts on their support needs. It is for us to work creatively with them and with partners to ensure we meet those needs.

Every day we work with well over 4,000 people and every year around 8,700. We help them to address issues they are experiencing and recognise their own skills and interests.

We embed our approach to support in a framework of Citizenship. Using this we deliver a holistic approach promoting the recovery, self-determination and inclusion of people experiencing challenges in their life. And we do this through focusing on their strengths and the valuable contributions they can make to their communities.

We define Citizenship as a measure of the strength of an individual’s connection to the 5 R’s of rights, responsibilities, roles, resources, and relationships that society makes available to its members.

About the Service

The Turning Point Scotland Glasgow Drugs Crisis Centre focusses on supporting people with problematic drug use. Proudly partnering with NHSGGC and the Health and Social Care Partnership, we operate a 24 hr residential and one stop services in a safe environment that challenges stigma and provides the advice and information required to begin the journey to recovery. We also deliver our Mobile Injecting Equipment Provision (IEP) 7 night per week, providing injecting equipment and harm reduction interventions from a mobile vehicle in the city centre of Glasgow and within the wider area of Glasgow as targeted interventions e.g. hotels. We are committed to helping individuals begin their journey to recovery whilst utilising harm reduction approaches, placing safety at the forefront of care delivery. We are passionate in encouraging citizens who use the service to improve and maintain relationships with family, friends and communities to build on their sense of belonging in society.
