Description

LinkLiving is a health and social care charity working in East Central Scotland to support people to overcome the negative impacts of trauma and disadvantage. We provide truly person-centred support through a range of models including self help coaching, employability, care at home, housing support and supported accommodation.

The charity is particularly recognised for supporting young people to develop the personal resilience, practical and emotional skills as well as the experience necessary for successfully managing key transitions in their lives. This includes leaving care, moving on from homelessness, moving into their own tenancy, and achieving positive destinations such as a course or a job. We aim to ensure that today's young Scots are in a position to achieve their full potential.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our vision is to be a provider of choice and excellence through a wide range of socially inclusive care, support and employability services. We are committed to positively supporting people to overcome the negative impacts on their lives of trauma, ill-health, poverty, inequality and isolation.
