Aberlour Family Support Service – Glasgow


The Aberlour Family Support Service help some of the most disadvantaged children, young people and families living in Glasgow. 

Working on individually, and in groups, we help young people and families by:

  • Reducing isolation
  • Encouraging engagement with their communities
  • Building resilience
  • Promoting positive health and well being.

How do we support families?

  • At home: we help improve the life chances of families and boost their confidence, well being and resilience. For instance, through practical, emotional and therapeutic means. 
  • In school: we enable children and young people to reach their potential. For example, helping to improve their attainment.
  • Within the community: we reach out to children and young people who are being missed by other services. For example, by meeting them on their territory – the streets. 
  • Additionally, we support families experiencing or at risk of homelessness assisting them in finding suitable housing solutions.

Our Projects

early intervention family support service

We work with children (aged 12 years and under) and their families to build skills, confidence and strengthen community connections. Our aim is to improve outcomes for families in the North West and South of Glasgow who need additional support when they most need it including evenings and weekends.  This is funded by the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (GCHSCP).

intensive family support service

In partnership with Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (GCHSCP) and other Third Sector providers we promote the wellbeing of young people (aged 12 years and older) and their families across Glasgow by offering caring and responsive support when it is most needed.  Our aim is to ensure that young people can continue to flourish at home, at school and in their local community.

The Bridges Partnership

In partnership with Shelter Scotland, the service helps mothers and their children living in throughout the city  who are or who have been subjected to domestic abuse. This is funded by the Scottish Government’s Equally Safe Fund.

Pupil Attainment

This project, funded by the Scottish Government’s Pupil Equality Fund (PEF), assists families in primary schools within the North-West Glasgow area. Focusing on health and well being above all, the project aims to improve the educational attainment of children within our services.

Our Journey Home

Our Journey Home is a new approach to preventing children and families in the South of Glasgow from becoming or remaining homeless. We provide this project in partnership with Shelter Scotland and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Youthpoint engages with children and young people either on the streets or at our weekly youth clubs in Govan, Elderpark and Pollok.  At our clubs, we carry out group work to facilitate building positive relationships, resilience and community engagement. We also host school holiday programmes to keep children and young people off the streets.
