GLASGOWS NO.1 BABY & FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICE (SCO47779)
HELPING HANDS DON'T JUDGE!!!
SIMPLICITY & COMMON SENSE HAS PROVEN TO BE THE WINNER!
A Bit of Background
Our service has been designed and built around simplicity & common sense. Identifying the issues, problems and obstacles people were faced with when seeking help for Hardship and Working poverty, the service was created by eliminating those obstacles and as a result GN1BFSS was born. Assisting people throughout Glasgow and beyond our clients and professionals who use the service have praised us endlessly on the ease and simplicity of the service. Two very important factors in our service, Councillor Elaine McDougal and Councillor Martin McElroy who have supported us endlessly for the past 3 years because they believed in us and for this we are forever thankful. Another major player in our service are the people of Scotland, OUR DONATORS. without their donations, our service would be non existent and the quality as well as the quantity that they donate daily is absolutely phenomenal.
OUR SERVICE OPERATES ON PEOPLE POWER AND THERE IS SIMPLY NO GREATER POWER THAN THAT OF THE PEOPLE WHEN THEY COME TOGETHER!
HOW IT WORKS
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IS EASY WHEN WE DO IT TOGETHER
REFERRING YOUR CLIENT COULD NOT BE EASIER. SIMPLY IDENTIFY THE CLIENTS NEEDS AND GIVE US A CALL. WHEN A REFERRAL IS MADE BY A PROFESSIONAL, NO CLIENT CONTACT IS NECESSARY, UNLESS YOU REQUIRE DELIVERY OF GOODS. IDENTIFY WHAT YOUR CLIENT NEEDS AND GIVE US A CALL. NO LONG AND LENGTHY REFERRAL FORMS TO FILL IN. WE TAKE YOUR ORDER BY PHONE OR EMAIL, PREPARE THE GOODS FOR YOU TO COLLECT AND ON PICKING UP THE PACK WE ASK YOU TO SIGN TWO FORMS AND THATS IT...JOB DONE! HOW EASY IS THAT?
TO SELF REFER, YOU GIVE US A CALL OR AN EMAIL. WE WILL TAKE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS ALONG WITH A BRIEF OUTLINE OF YOUR REQUIREMENTS, WE THEN COME TO VISIT. AT THE VISIT WE CAN ASSESS YOUR NEEDS AND DISCUSS HOW OUR SERVICE CAN HELP YOU. IF WE ARE SATISFIED YOU FIT THE HARDSHIP OR WORKING POVERTY CRITERIA, WE GO AWAY AND MAKE YOUR PACK RETURNING IT TO YOU AT THE FIRST AVAILABLE DATE. WE DO NOT PRY INTO YOUR PERSONAL DNA LIKE OTHER SERVICES DO AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANY FORMS WITH SILLY QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO SIT TOYING OVER FOR HOURS ON END. WE UNDERSTAND THE EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPACT POVERTY AND HARDSHIP CAN HAVE ON PEOPLE SO WE AIM TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE AND AT EASE. ALL WORKERS ARE PVG CHECKED AND HAVE A COMPASSIONATE AND CARING APPROACH.
