The service helps support adults with learning disabilities to live their lives independently.

Although this service has received consistently high marks from the Care Inspectorate, the most recent report, following an inspection in November, has seen these grades increase to ‘Very Good’ across all categories that were inspected.

The Care Inspector concluded in the report that: “Service users were supported in a person centred manner and their views, choices and preferences were at the forefront of the care and support received.”
