Dovecote Hall Cottage

Welcome to Dovecote Hall Cottage

Located on the outskirts of a large town in North Ayrshire, Dovecote Hall Cottage is a charming former toll house, situated within semi-rural agricultural land. The service offers comfortable and scenic accommodation, including an annexe for more independent living. The main house is an ideal setting for a solo placement or sibling group aged 8 to 18 years with a range of needs.

Supporting the needs of the young people

At Dovecote Hall Cottage, we support children and young people with trauma and adverse childhood experiences, as well as additional support needs. This includes an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), pathological demand avoidance (PDA), social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs and child sexual exploitation (CSE).

The staff ratios reflect the needs of the young people, with the service offering 1:1 and 2:1 support, and includes a 24-hour waking service. Where required, we can also provide supported living to individuals via our satellite flat, as part of pathways planning.

Providing best practice

We promote the safety and wellbeing of all children, young people and staff. GIRFEC is at the core of our work. There is an emphasis on the clear roles and responsibilities of the child, young person and staff worker, to establish a safe and therapeutic environment.

Embedded within our work at Dovecote Hall Cottage, is a commitment to an ‘outcomes’ approach in meeting needs. Central to this are our approaches to assessment, which are the cornerstones of our work. We are committed to our ‘one team’ ethos and promote safety, wellbeing and opportunity for our children, young people and staff.
