GPs, Professionals and Support Agencies can refer to Stepping Stones using our referral form, which is available by contacting us at

Please be aware that Stepping Stones can only accept referrals for those who reside within West Dunbartonshire and are at least 16 years of age.

When completing referral form, please provide as much relevant information as possible.

After receipt of referral form, most people receive an assessment appointment within 4 – 8 weeks. However, waiting times can fluctuate and allocation to our services may take a further 4 – 20 weeks depending on demand.

We currently offer assessment appointments in Stepping Stones office in Clydebank, with some availability in Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven.  Home Visits can also be arranged if required. Following assessment, we can offer support in the home for a short period of time, usually for 4 – 6 support sessions.

If we feel that another service is better placed to support the person, we will refer the person to that service.
