Thistlebank is situated on the outskirts of Cumnock. It is a detached three bed-roomed single storey property. We aim to ensure that our house reflects that of a family home where young people feel safe, relaxed and cared for in a non-institutionalised setting.
The house has a utility room, a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, large lounge and a conservatory. There are three bedrooms for young people with a communal bathroom. There is a separate toilet for the staff along with an office and sleep-in area. Each of the young person’s bedrooms are warm and bright and we encourage all those who come and live with us to bring their own personal possessions to make their bedroom feel their own. We provide a TV and CD/Radio in each bedroom.
Staff ensure that the environment of the home is maintained to a high standard and young people are encouraged to help with jobs to keep the communal areas clean and tidy. Young people are encouraged, to use the kitchen for the preparation of food. Outside the property there is a huge garden with lawned areas where children can play and young people can relax.
