Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The sup­port of­fered by Shelter Scot­land’s ser­vice for peo­ple who are home­less or at risk of home­less­ness in South La­nark­shire has been rated ‘ex­cel­lent’ by the Care In­spec­torate.

Sup­port work­ers were praised for help­ing peo­ple to set and achieve their own goals around hous­ing, fi­nances, health and relationships.

The ser­vice in South La­nark­shire sup­ports 30 fam­i­lies who have been as­sessed as home­less and in need of hous­ing sup­port. It is com­mis­sioned and funded by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

Head of hous­ing ser­vices An­nette Fin­nan said: “We are de­lighted to see the ex­cel­lent Care In­spec­torate grades awarded to Shelter’s South La­nark­shire sup­port ser­vice.

“This re­flects the high qual­ity of ser­vice they pro­vide and is tes­ta­ment to close and ef­fec­tive part­ner­ship work­ing be­tween them and our lo­cal hous­ing ser­vices.”

Ruth Robin, op­er­a­tions man­ager for Shelter Scot­land, said: “We are de­lighted to have reached this mile­stone. An ex­cel­lent grad­ing by the Care In­spec­torate proves that our team in South La­nark­shire is de­liv­er­ing a top-qual­ity ser­vice.”
