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 via telephone or video link. Face to face appointments are offered in our offices in Clydebank, however, these are very limited at the moment because of the government guidelines on Covid-19. We will review this once the lockdown starts to ease and we move through the phases, ensuring we follow best practice around health and safety.

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