Leeds care group expands Scottish footprint with £1m investment in new homes
A Yorkshire-headquartered care specialist is set to boost its care provision in Scotland with £1m investment into new facilities.
Pebbles, which is based in Leeds, has invested in the transformation of a trio of Scottish properties into care homes.
Established in 2003, Pebbles has grown into a national service with 46 residencies and two schools, specialising in meeting the needs of vulnerable young people aged between eight and 18.
Glen Cottage in Glasgow and Kippsbyre Cottage in Airdrie are set to open shortly, with South Lodge in Glenrothes to follow later this month.
Michael Walsh, chief executive of Pebbles, commented: “When we take on a new property we do so with one aim in mind - to create a loving home that gives vulnerable young people the feeling of being safe and a place where they can overcome some of the issues they face.
“The three new homes in Scotland are all in ideal locations and have been transformed to give us the ability to offer dual and solo home provision, with the ability for our staff to sleepover if required.
“Our presence north of the border has grown significantly in recent years, as local authorities have switched on to the way we care for young people. After this latest expansion, we will have 18 homes here and will be able to support up to 47 individuals.”
