James Shields Project
The James Shields Project is supported homeless accommodation which is a partnership between Glasgow City Council and Quarriers. We offer a range of services to young men and women aged between 17-25. The service has 37 self contained flats for young people who can live here for up to two years.
Each of the young people are assigned a key worker who assists with budgeting skills, cooking skills, housekeeping skills and door control that equips young people with the necessary skills and confidence to enable them to move on to their own tenancies.
16 of the 37 flats are for young people with addiction issues where they will attend a group work programme twice weekly and one-to-one counselling is also provided weekly.
The project also has an outreach service that helps young people in making the transition from supported accommodation to living in their own tenancy by providing long-term solutions, the skills they need to break the cycle of homelessness and ultimately the means to live independently within the community.
Referrals to the James Shields Project can be made by any agency.
