The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army Greenock Floating Support Service provides a housing support service to adults with a range of support needs. The service works in close partnership with the ARDS (Inverclyde Alcohol and Drug Recovery Service), Inverclyde Community Mental Health Team, Inverclyde Homelessness Services and the Inverclyde Learning Disability Team. The support is delivered to people who use the service within their own homes and in the local community. Referrals come via Inverclyde Council community commissioning Team. Service is commissioned through Inverclyde HSCP resource allocation groups.

At present we can deliver up to 190 hours of support on average per week an additional 160 hours will be added to this in coming months, bringing this to 350 hours per week of housing support being delivered to those who need it the most.

We work in partnership and are adjacent to the local Salvation Army church Community hall.

Clients can attend groups all hosted at the Greenock Corps and Community Centre.
