Adult Services provide support, across West Central Scotland, working with people with varied needs.
This support changes according to individual needs and personal requests. Some supports are in people’s houses, others are based in the community. All supports are people to live as independently as possible, to achieve their potential and fully participate in the community.
Adult services also provide group support, which anyone can attend. We currently run the following fun activities; drama; arts and crafts; health and fitness; creative writing and digital skills.
As well as our organised group activities, we can support you to participate in pass times that you enjoy. From going to football matches to going to the cinema or gym.
The support we can provide for you can get you connected in your community, build your social life and achieve your goals.
We can also offer you flexible support in your own home. This can help you plan and prepare meals, manage your money, keep your home tidy. Support can also help you make appointments and maintain your health and wellbeing.

Claire is 29 years old and lives with her parents in Giffnock, Glasgow.
Cosgrove provides 38 hours of support per week when Claire is supported to access the activities of her choice during her support time. These include going to the bikes at Glasgow Green, keep fit at the Gorbals Leisure Centre, bowling, and cinema.
Claire also enjoys spending time in our Connexions building with her friends.
Claire’s family said:
“Claire skips out of the door in the morning when she is collected and as a young person who is virtually non-verbal this is all we need to see to know that she is happy at Cosgrove. She often comes home from Cosgrove smelling of perfume which means that at some point during the day someone who has been looking after her has held her close – we love that”
