The Mungo Foundation – Community Support Services
Community Support Services operates city wide to provide opportunities for people with disabilities to come together and enjoy activities and learning and development opportunities as well as short breaks with friends and peers. From our base in the East of the city of Glasgow (Barrowfield Community Centre) we focus on using community resources to enhance people’s experiences of being part of their local communities.
Adults with learning disabilities, ASD, over the age of 65.
provide opportunities for people to come
together to participate in shared interest groups or for one to one or shared
support depending on assessed needs and personal preference. Support can be provided through the day, in
the evening or at weekends. We currently
have a base in the East of the city but support people city wide to use a
variety of accessible resources. Some of
the activities that people currently enjoy are Bowling, swimming, drama,
boccia, arts and crafts, ‘hands on’ gardening experience and caring for the
environment . We also support people to
develop independent living skills through groups like, “Cooking without gas,”
using produce grown by our gardening group.
Mungo Foundation also offers alternatives to Residential Respite in the
form of supported Short Breaks. With a
number of years of experience our Project Manager supports individuals, their
families and carers to plan Short Breaks depending on assessed need, personal
preference and of course budget. Support
can be offered as part of a group and on a one to one basis. Destinations we have previously supported
people to include Flamingoland, bus trips to Blackpool, the Scottish Highlands
and Dunoon, Aberdeenshire and Florida. Self-drive
breaks can be arranged as well as making use of bus tours and public
transport. If your preference is to have
some guaranteed sunshine then support to plan, book and go on holidays abroad can also be
