Organisation Profile: Elevate-Glasgow is a Public Social Partnership (PSP). Its aim is to improve the design of services for people in recovery from substance misuse regarding their employability and to enhance partner agencies’ commitment to collaboration and innovation in the delivery of support services.

Public Social Partnerships (PSPs) are strategic partnering arrangements, through which the public sector can collaborate with third sector organisations (voluntary, charity and social enterprise organisations) to share responsibility for designing services. A key principle of this approach is that services are designed co-productively with service users.

Glasgow Council on Alcohol (GCA) was founded in 1965 and is the oldest established Council on Alcohol in Scotland. GCA is a voluntary organisation working to reduce the harm caused by alcohol misuse through the provision of a range of high quality advice, information, counselling, support, prevention and education and training services.
