Garvald Edinburgh’s Supported Living Service provides a range of support including Accommodation based support and Outreach support. This may be provided from the family home or a flat that Garvald has helped provide through arrangements with a local Housing Association. Support ranges from just a few hours a week up to 24 hour support including sleep over support.
Garvald Reach out is a user led service that supports individuals to create a personalised support service which can be delivered on a 1:1 basis or as part of a larger group. Participants engage in meaningful activities built around their desired outcomes. Garvald Reach out is a flexible service that works around the needs of the individuals, i.e. day, evening, weekends and overnights.
We have an Involvement Worker who challenges our practice and ensures service users are involved in the running of the service.
Our aim is to assist people to maintain and develop their independence. We believe however, that it is important to value interdependence: where people are valued and relied upon as part of their community as well as needing the support of the community.
Central to our support is working with the person or their family to make sure that what we provide is right for that person and is supporting the lifestyle they want for themselves.
