Inclusive Living Solutions
GCIL currently provides the following Independent Living Support Services aimed at disabled people in Glasgow who are managing, or thinking of managing, their own support system:
GCIL has been commissioned by Glasgow City Council to support people using Direct Payments to pay for Community Care. Direct Payments offer disabled people increased choice and flexibility by enabling them to recruit their own workers or buy in appropriate services.
Independent Living Support
A one to one support service on all aspects of setting up an Independent Living Support (ILS) Scheme in order to be able to live more independently in the community. These aspects include assistance in preparing for Community Care assessments, liaising with funders and all aspects of successfully managing an ILS Scheme.
PA Employer Recruitment Support Service
This service supports PA employers who are recruiting PAs. We can offer assistance with the following:
- Drafting your advertisement
- Providing an application pack, including sample job descriptions, job specifications, contracts, etc.
- Co-ordinating responses to your advertisement
- Compiling a short list
- Setting up your interviews, including the use of our fully-accessible meeting rooms

However, if you choose not to become an employer we will support you to identify an appropriate care provider who will provide a support package designed to meet your individual needs. We also provide an information sheet that contains details of a selection of the care agencies operating in the Glasgow area.
Throughout the recruitment process you will be supported on a one-to-one basis by one of our Inclusive Living Advisers.
