TESTIMONIAL FROM A HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL :
Columcille 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.
Dr. Harold Boddy- Associate Specialist LD Psychiatry, Royal Edinburgh Hospital 

If you have a client who could benefit from attending activities at Columcille, please have a look at this website and then e-mail Columcille or telephone to speak with the manager (direct line 0131 446 6875) to discuss possibilities.

An exploratory visit will be arranged, which is helpful in deciding if Columcille will be able to meet the person’s individual needs and wishes.  If this visit is mutually positive, and space is available, a place would be reserved, and a trial period set up, usually for a week or two.   Participants may attend for anything from half a day per week to five days per week and the trial period would reflect this

Places at Columcille are  funded either by Direct Payments or by a Health and Social Care, at the City of Edinburgh Council. A social worker will normally manage the application process.
