As a result of funding being made available by the Scottish Government, the Association has now appointed The Mungo Foundation to provide a Tenancy Support Service to Hillhead and Antonine Housing Associations.
The Mungo Foundation has a long history of providing support to people with a wide range of difficulties whether these are life-long such as sight or hearing problems, learning disability etc; or difficulties at a particular period in their lives such as homelessness, addiction, young adults leaving care etc.
The Support Worker for this area will be based in our office at 2 Meiklehill Road and can be contacted on 0141 776 8628
