Govanhill Street Project is a residential care home in an adapted tenement in the Govanhill area of the south of Glasgow. The project provides support for adults who experience enduring mental ill health. The project offers single room accommodation and communal cooking and social areas. The project works on the Recovery Model of Care and aims for people to live at Govanhill for up to 4 years before moving on to a more independent accommodation.

Govanhill Street service offers high support to adults who are experiencing mental ill health.

All support is carried out by means of assessing an individual's needs and wishes and devising a support plan, which is used to meet the individual's requirements. The staff at the service use person centred planning with all individuals.

The service is formed as part of a tenement building where we occupy the bottom floor.  There are 6 bedrooms which are all fully furnished and have en-suite toilet facilities. 

Referral Criteria

Govanhill Street Project provides services for adults over 18 and under 65 years of age who experience mental ill health.

Referrals are made by local authority Care Managers or health professionals. A single shared assessment will be carried out with the service users' needs and desires at the centre of all discussions.

Service users will be invited to visit the project on a number of occasions prior to moving in, in order to get to know staff and other service users and to ensure that they are confident that the service will meet their needs. The first 4 weeks from admission to the service is an assessment period after which a review will take place to confirm the suitability of the placement.
