A HOMELESS support service in Renfrew has been praised by inspectors. 

The Renfrew Project, in Victoria Drive East, offers accommodation and support to homeless adults aged 21 and over, housing up to 17 individuals. 

Officers from the Care Inspectorate, which regulates social services, visited the project in February and published a report. 

In the report, inspectors rated the service as ‘very good’ - the second highest rating - for its care and support and quality of management and leadership.

Inspectors added: “We spoke with four service users during inspection. 

“They all spoke very positively about the service, and all advised they felt they were doing much better since moving into the project.

“We found that there was very good evidence of staff building positive relationships with service users.”

Inspectors praised the project, run by Blue Triangle Housing Association, for continuing to support users who had since moved onto their own tenancy. 

And while they noted there were a high number of significant incidents, they found these were handled exceptionally well by staff members.

One user told Inspectors: “It’s been life changing.”

However, inspectors did recommend improvements were made to the service’s risk assessments.
