We are delighted to announce that our Ayrshire and Aberdeenshire services have recently joined the Scotland Excel Flexible Framework Agreement For Children’s Residential Care and Education, including Short Break, Services.
The flexible framework agreement is currently operated by Scotland Excel on behalf of Scottish local authorities. Originally established in 2018, the flexible framework agreement is for the provision of high-quality placements for children and young people who may have a range of complex and challenging support needs, and therefore require a residential care, care and education, education and/or short breaks placement.
Our Scotland portfolio at Aspris Children’s Services comprising of two specialist schools and associated children’s homes are all on the Scotland Excel Flexible Framework Agreement. Both Radio City School in Kilbirnie, Ayrshire, and Troup House School in Banff, Aberdeenshire, provide education and care services to children and young people aged 8 to 18 years with a range of needs. This includes an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs, and other behaviours that may challenge.
David McNally, Operations Director for Scotland at Aspris Children’s Services, said: “We are delighted to have joined the Scotland Excel Flexible Framework Agreement For Children’s Residential Care and Education, including Short Break, Services.
“As an established education and care provider operating in Scotland, we have a proven track record of delivering high quality services and achieving positive outcomes for young people with a range of needs. For example, seven of our children’s homes in Ayrshire are graded as either a ‘5 – Very Good’ or ‘6 – Excellent’ during their latest inspection from the Care Inspectorate.
“We are also committed to doing all we can to #KeepThePromise for children and young people in Scotland. We put the children in our care at the heart of all that we do to ensure every child grows up loved, safe, respected and able to realise their full potential.”
