Our Support Services

Stepping Stones is a registered charity and user led organisation that provides a range of services to people who are aged 16 plus and reside in West  Dunbartonshire. Our service is informed by the Health and Social Care Standards and the Scottish Social Services Council Codes of Practice.  The Support Service element of our work is registered with the Care Inspectorate.

The Care Inspectorate is the independent regulator of all health and social care services in Scotland. Its aim is to make sure better care is provided for everyone – in hospitals, care homes and people’s own homes. They publish their inspection reports on their website www.careinspectorate.com which also provides details of all social care services available throughout Scotland. They can be contacted with general enquiries, or complaints, at any time, by telephoning 03456009527, or by visiting their website on www.careinspectorate.com.

Stepping Stones services are facilitated across West Dunbartonshire in various locations and the service and support received will be at a mutually convenient location which will be agreed at the assessment stage of the referral process.

The services we provide are facilitated by qualified staff, trainees and volunteers who undergo training and receive regular support and supervision.

Currently, there are no charges associated with the services we provide.
