Welcome to Signpost’s website!
Support for families of young people with disabilities or additional needs in West Lothian.
We are a voluntary organisation which offers information and support to young people with additional support needs and their families in West Lothian. We try to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ where people can explain their needs and be matched to agencies or other sources of information who can help. We are also pleased to take enquiries from professionals working with families or individuals. Anyone can contact us – you don’t need a referral!
We also provide a confidential, supportive and non-judgmental environment for anyone who needs to discuss an issue or consider their options on a particular topic. We may be able to help with additional information or contacts which will help you to decide what is best for yourself or your family. Why not call us or drop for a chat, we’re here to help in any way we can.
We are here to help!
If you live in West Lothian and have a child with a disability/additional support need then call us, we can help.
