Blackburn House

Blackburn House is located in a beautiful rural setting in the South of Scotland not far from the towns of Lockerbie and Dumfries. It is a service that can provide for up to two young people, which provides an individualised care experience for young people who may find larger group living experiences less beneficial. The team promotes a multi-agency approach to help strengthen family links, where appropriate, supports participation in education and ensures that a range of activities and opportunities are made available. In the local area, there are lots of opportunities to enjoy different activities including sporting clubs, water sports, youth groups and a range of Cadet organisations. The house has a very large garden that is great for sports, games and BBQs.

The staff team saw my full potential which helped me progress and develop.

I certainly wasn’t an angel but I always knew that the staff team wouldn’t give up on me.
