In Glasgow, Penumbra operates an Alcohol Related Brain Damage (ARBD) Supported Living Service.

We work with people in the city who have ARBD to offer them support which allows them to live in their own homes. Penumbra staff engage with each individual’s needs, covering issues including daily living skills, health issues, social activities, education and employment.

Staff are based from a centrally located office space in the heart of the city and our support is delivered seven days a week usually between 9am and 5pm, although alternative arrangements can be made upon request.

Currently, our supported people are located in the Drygate, Possilpark, Yoker and Knightswood areas of the city with pending referrals in Govan and Hillhead. The service evolved around 2006 when a need became apparent for people who left the Penumbra ARBD Supported Accommodation to relocate into their own tenancies.

We work closely with Glasgow City Council, Health and Social Care Partnerships, Mental Health and Addiction commissioning teams to identify and assess the suitability of potential referrals, before working alongside the person and significant others to devise a person centred and recovery focused support plan.
