Possobilities
 
Possobilities was established in 1984 by disabled people in North Glasgow. Over the last 25 years it has grown and developed into one of the most respected voluntary organisations in the city through its role as a community hub. Members range in age from 5 to 75 and all disabilities are represented.
 
Possobilities is dedicated to helping the community of Possilpark and North Glasgow to flourish through their centre, social and educational programmes, Cook ‘n’ Care, and The Steamie.
 
Cook ‘n’ Care
 
For almost 12 years Cook ‘n’ Care has been providing a first-class meals delivery and care service for vulnerable, elderly and disabled people in their own homes.
 
Serving the whole of North Glasgow with quality meals and efficient and friendly volunteer care staff.
 
•Homemade meals are cooked from scratch every day and delivered hot and ready to eat, unlike overpriced frozen meals
•Menus are varied, working on a 3 weekly menu cycle and are always healthy and nutritious
•Local volunteers are very flexible – they can deliver on one or two days only, or every day, as required
 
Their service is open to anyone who needs it – while some of their customers have a disability, others use Cook ‘n’ Care simply because they are getting older or due to temporary illness.
 
They are always happy to discuss your requirements and can even provide a free sample meal so you can see and taste the quality of what they offer. We can also take away a lot of the anxiety and stress of caring for a friend or relative at meal times.
 
Give them a call or drop in to see us. Meals are currently £4.00 for a 3 course meal, fantastic value for money!
 
The Steamie
 
Possobilities also offer an affordable Glasgow laundry service, known as The Steamie. It was developed to complement these other services and is designed primarily to support those living at home who may have trouble lifting heavy items like baskets of laundry – or even those who just want a break from the washing!
 
One large bag of laundry costs £11 including pickup and delivery
 
They can wash any item for you in their industrial machines including bedding, quilts, most items of clothing, bulk kits (football, rugby etc.) as well as heavily soiled items which other machines may struggle to clean effectively. They also dry your clothes before they’re returned to you.
 
Affordable Glasgow Laundry Service
 
Not only is their laundry service significantly cheaper than many others available in the city, their pick up and delivery service is free meaning that your laundry will be returned to you washed and dried within three working days.
 
Their drivers will pick up from a variety of locations across the city, roughly within the same boundaries as theirCook ‘n’ Care service. To find out if we can collect from you, try the Postcode Checker on their homepage.
 
Hall Hire
 
Their hall is available for hire on certain days. Whether you’re looking to run an event or a training day for your organization contact them for details on cost and availability.
 
Summer House Hire
 
Their summer house has been completely redesigned and rebuilt to better service the needs of their members. It is fully accessible and offers a warm environment with a view of their brand new sensory garden for anyone wanting to have a meeting, hold a wee party or just relax with a few friends all year round. Availability is limited, so please don’t hesitate to contact them.
