Support Service (Children and Adults)
We offer a range of flexible, responsive services for children, young people and adults whose communication support needs result from a range of impairments including deafblindness; sensory impairment; physical or learning disabilities.
We will work with you to provide the support service you require, whether you are looking for a few hours a week, an evening activity, or a weekend service.
You may want to take advantage of the specialist facilities within TouchBase in Kinning Park, or to be supported to take part in community based activities.
We will listen to what you need, and if you have chosen to use an individual budget, we will help you work out how you can use it to live your life to the full.
Referrals are welcomed from people seeking support, carers and professionals.
