Westside Farmhouse

Westside Farmhouse is a five-bedroom house situated in the outskirts of Falkirk. Westside is a long-term placement service commissioned by Falkirk Council, and we encourage all our young people to continue to participate in the wider community. Parents and carers are invited to Westside routinely throughout each individual care placement. At Westside we will guide and encourage each individual to feel safe, and allow them to explore their own identity through attention and support from the team around them.

My years at Westside gave me the grounding I needed for moving on, and becoming independent.

Previous Resident, Westside Farmhouse
I love my work. We work well together which impacts positively on the young people. We try, where possible, to offer a family alternative.

Staff Member, Westside Farmhouse
I moved to Falkirk after living in Fife for most of my life. I am now able to have friends in the community, go out and play and get the school bus, all with the help of the staff.
