The ARCH Resettlement Centre

The building consists of office space, support offices and 11 x one-bedroom, self contained flats with all amenities over three floors. There is a lift for those with mobility issues. There is a south facing garden with an area set aside for relaxation purposes and barbequing.

The fabric of the building has recently been upgraded with new flooring, decorating and lighting system.

The ARCH also has 9 scatter flats. These are flats set aside for tenants who may require some additional support at the time they move on from The ARCH. Loneliness can have an adverse effect on people when they live isolated in the community. The Project identified this some years back and decided to purchase and sublet property within the local community so that low level support could be on offer for the most vulnerable of tenants.

 

The ARCH is run by a team consisting of Manager, Deputy Manager, and Administrator/Finance Officer, 3 x Resettlement Support Workers, Part Time Weekend Support and sessional staff.

The ARCH Resettlement Centre is commissioned by Glasgow City Council to deliver a 10-module support programme over 26 weeks so that men are able to sustain their own tenancy when presented to social housing for consideration. Support is provided by 3 dedicated resettlement support workers (RSW’s). The service offers a one-to-one, holistic approach towards support, with each support plan tailor-made for each service user.

Over the course of a week each service user will be expected to attend group work on a Monday and 5 x one-to-one support sessions. This will reduce as service users complete each module, culminating in the resettlement module where it's anticipated they will be ready to secure their own tenancy.

Tenants are free to disengage at any time and secure private rented accommodation if they so wish.

Referral Process

All referrals come through Glasgow City Council’s, Commissioning Officer for The ARCH.

People are welcome to call the office for further information on the process of how to gain access to the project
