Charity registered in Scotland SC028252
Established in 1989, Positive Steps has grown to become a major agency dedicated to promoting the health, wellbeing and social lifestyles of vulnerable adults irrespective of gender, ethnicity, culture, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. As a not-for-profit Christian charity based in Scotland, Positive Steps has enabled vulnerable adults locally and internationally to overcome various barriers to sustain their independence through provision of key services: Housing Support, Accommodation Service, Flexi Care, T.A.O.S (Temporary Accommodation Outreach Service) and R.H.P.S (Repeat Homeless Prevention Service) services. Therefore, we have developed services and programmes to support and enable an individual to make an informed choice.
We work with individuals who have a wide range of potential barriers to sustain independent living and are impacted by mental health, learning disabilities, substance misuse, offending behaviour, homelessness and poverty. Sometimes the individuals we work with have to deal with more than one barrier in their lives and we can provide the support, care, accommodation and practical assistance required for people to overcome such barriers to enable vulnerable adults to reach their full potential.
Positive Steps is a Christian charity; working in Dundee since 1989 we support some of the most vulnerable people living in our community.
Our services provide person-centred support to people experiencing a range of challenges and problems living in the community.
