HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL TESTIMONIAL:
Columcille Day Centre continues to provide an invaluable service to the NHS Learning Disability department in Lothian. The service is popular with clients across Edinburgh, Mid-Lothian and East Lothian.  They have been an anchor of stability in an ever changing spectrum of redesign and shrinkage of facilities.  An experienced and stable staff group liaise closely with Health and Social Services and the respect and support afforded our patients, is reflected in the popularity amongst service users.  I would wish to thank them for their continued efforts in caring for the most vulnerable clients in our society.

If after having viewed our website, you feel that you have a client who may enjoy and benefit from attending activities at Columcille, we recommend that you e-mail Columcille initially or telephone to speak with the manager (direct line 0131 446 6875) to explore possibilities.

An exploratory visit can then be arranged which is often very helpful in deciding if Columcille will be able to meet the person’s individual needs and wishes.  If this meeting is mutually positive and space is available, the placement would be confirmed and a trial period agreed.   Participants may attend for anything from half a day per week to five days per week.

Columcille is currently funded via block funding from City of Edinburgh Health and Social Care Department. There is no charge if clients are not currently receiving Direct Payments. This situation will change in the future as Self Directed Support is introduced. Details of sessional charges will be made available as Self Directed Support is introduced.
