Welcome to The Mungo Foundation
The intrinsic value and dignity of human life is central to all care and support undertaken by The Mungo Foundation. As a service provider we are committed to developing caring, supportive, person-centred and personalised environments which promote and enhance the quality and dignity of life of the person and which values the life of everyone we support. This holistic approach involves taking an interest in the “whole” life of the “whole” person. This commitment is made to all those persons using our services.
Respect for the dignity of human life cannot be separated from justice. This respect implies a demand for justice, namely recognition of the intrinsic human rights of all people. The Mungo Foundation offers support, advice and a range of services to people who are disadvantaged and or suffering from poverty.
We endeavour to promote a positive image of the most vulnerable in our society, reduce stigma and to speak out on any issues affecting the people we support.
A community is more than simply a geographical location. It is about people living, working and being active members of society. The Mungo Foundation is committed to supporting people to become valued members of their local communities and wider society. The commitment is to building communities based on supportive and just relationships. The aim of The Mungo Foundation is to support and promote relationships which are conducive to growth and development, while recognising the specific rights of the individual.
This website describes the range of services provided by The Mungo Foundation and gives some background information on our work.
It is aimed at people who use our services, their carers and families, care professionals who wish to access our services, staff and volunteers.
We hope that this website will provide you with ease of access to our services and to the people responsible for managing them.
At The Mungo Foundation, we believe that we make a difference to peoples lives by providing support to help them realise their choices. We remain committed to our founding values of life, justice and community.
The Mungo Foundation, formerly the Community Social Services Department of the Archdiocese of Glasgow, is an independent organisation in the volutary sector.
Established in 2004 to take forward the work of the Archdiocese of Glasgow Community Social Services Department, as inspired by the Gospel of Christ, and enriched by the tradition and ethical teaching of the Catholic Church.
We have 30 years experience of providing quality person-centred services to individuals of all ages with wide range and complex support needs.
Today, The Mungo Foundation employs nearly 840 staff who support around 1,500 service users in a diverse range of services throughout West and Central Scotland. We continue to respond to 'new' needs, as is demonstrated by our young asylum seekers and addiction projects.
