Mainstay provide individualised support services to around 100 individuals who live in the City of Glasgow. Each of these people have different circumstances in terms of their support structures. Some of these people live on their own and have support to manage their day to day life choices.
Tasks undertaken by Support Workers generally include money matters and managing household tasks. The other people supported predominantly live with their parents, though some live with brothers and sisters. In these cases the Support Workers are involved less in assisting with financial and day to day household tasks and much more in supporting the person to undertake individual activities or group activities that are meaningful to them. These can include engaging in voluntary work, attending college, going to a Glasgow City Council Day Services, meeting up with friends at local groups or groups organised by Mainstay, going to the gym and other social activities that are enjoyed by everyone.
Other popular activities for this service are the short breaks and holiday opportunities that they can plan throughout the year. The Support Workers will also support each of these individuals with all of their personal support needs as they are presented.
Each service has an allocated management representative with each case managed either by a Senior Support Worker or Service Manager for the service. The service is managed by a team of Managers and the Operations Manager, who are part of the Senior Management Team.
This service is registered with the Care Inspectorate and required to adhere to the National Care Standards applicable to Care at Home, Housing Support Services and Support Services (advisory). Our most recent inspection reports can be found on the Care Inspectorate website or on our News page.
