A support service for adults with learning disabilities has received a glowing report card from the Care Inspectorate.

Kelvinbank Resource Centre, operated by East Dunbartonshire Council, currently provides support to over 100 individuals with a learning disability, some of whom have profound and complex support needs, affecting mobility, communication and cognitive functioning.

The Kirkintilloch service’s quality of care and support, quality of environment, quality of staffing and quality of management and leadership were all rated as Grade 5 (Very Good) by the Care Inspectorate - the second highest grade available.

Councillor Manjinder Shergill, the council’s vice convenor of social work, said: “This is an extremely positive report and highlights the fantastic work being carried out at Kelvinbank.

“Kelvinbank and its Outlook and Outreach Project services provide care and support to people with a wide range of complex needs.

“The report praises the Centre’s trained workers for the way they support services users with their health and wellbeing needs and how they interact with them, and it is pleasing to hear them get the recognition they deserve.

“This service is well liked by the people who use it and it strives to put users at the heart of what it does. We are currently in the process of redeveloping the service but the people who use it will continue to be involved in this process.”
