Minibus is vital for Columcille


Columcille’s minibus and full-time driver are out every day in all weathers enabling people with multiple disabilities to be collected from their homes and taken to the centre in Morningside.

Thanks to funding from the RS Macdonald Trust, Robertson Trust, Bank of Scotland Foundation, Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust, Cruden Foundation and Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust, Columcille is continuing to provide this essential transport free of charge to people who would otherwise not be able to travel to the centre.

This safe, reliable service is vital to the health and well-being of people with disabilities and ensures that people with very profound needs can go out on daily trips in the minibus, socially integrate with the wider community, have contact with nature and the outdoors and not be confined to home or the centre.


Holiday dates

Columcille closes for Christmas on Friday 22nd December at 3 pm. We reopen on Wednesday 3rd January. We wish you all a happy Christmas and with wishes for world peace
