The project opened as a community-based house for people with learning disabilities in 1984 and most of the people living there had previously spent much of their lives in large institutions.
Developments in recent years have seen people move from the house into their own tenancies within the local community and the project now operates a "supported living" model of support to 18 people. The project now operates from office-based premises in a central location in Girvan which affords easy access for the people we support as well as the large team of support workers.
The project is also registered to provide community support to people who wish to access educational or recreational resources.
