Following a tender process run by Health and Social Care Moray, ENABLE Scotland has been welcomed as the care provider to a new service supporting individuals with Learning disabilities, Autism and Complex support needs in Elgin.
The new project is a collaboration between Health and Social Care Moray and social housing provider and developer, Hanover Scotland, and is due for completion in February 2022. It is a modern development using the latest technology to support people in their new homes. There will be a vibrant team on site 24 hours a day making a real difference to the lives of six supported people.
ENABLE Scotland, the country’s leading social care provider currently has 20 staff in Moray, and provides high quality, self-directed health and social care to adults, young people and children supporting them to live independent lives within their local communities. The new development enables individuals to live in the community of their choosing whilst creating over 20 new job opportunities in the local area.
