For adults, these have included registered accommodation, supported independent living, volunteer befriending, employment, further education, supported employment and recreational activities. For children and young people, Cosgrove provides developmental training after-school and during holidays.

    Today, Cosgrove supports people in East Renfrewshire, Glasgow, the West of Scotland, and Edinburgh. Our services have not only become a lifeline for service users and families, but are recognised by local authorities, the Care Commission and Investors in People as:
    • Complying to the highest standards
    • Recognising the dignity and welfare of individuals
    • Enhancing life, broadening horizons, developing independence and confidence

    • People with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues have the right to experience the same pattern of daily life as the rest of the community.
