Young people staying at Stopover often experience major difficulties in addition to their housing needs. These can include drug addiction, alcohol misuse, mental health problems, offending behaviour or severe emotional and psychological issues. Some also have a history of physical, mental and sexual abuse.
Stopover works intensively with young people and uses a key work system that is carefully planned and monitored. This process involves regular reviews and the creation of a structured support plan using person-centred planning. The plan details the steps involved in helping the young person address any difficulties they may have. Each young person at Stopover meets with their keyworker once a week to review progress and agree future action plans. Service user involvement is high on our agenda and young people are encouraged to have their say at the residents’ meetings.
How do we achieve this?
Quarriers Stopover Service accepts referrals from Glasgow City Council Social Work Department, voluntary agencies, and family and friends. Young people can also refer themselves to the project. You or someone on your behalf can make a referral and places will be allocated on a priority basis.
