Aberlour Family Service – South Ayrshire


We help parents with learning disabilities in South Ayrshire provide the best care for their children. Our team visit family homes regularly  to ensure that children are thriving and cared for.

We support parents to fulfil their potential and keep families together by making sure children are safe, healthy and happy. As a result, children are less likely to be taken into care.

how we help parents with learning disabilities

Firstly, our workers carry out assessments using special software called Parenting Assessment Manual Software (PAMs). The software helps to identify the different types of extra help that might benefit families. Next, we introduce support to the family. Help could include boosting life skills through cooking lessons, budgeting support and parenting sessions.

Finally, we hold regular parents’ forums with our staff in a relaxed setting. These meetings allow parents to share their experiences of the service and learn from one another.

We take referrals from professionals and agencies working with families. If you would like to make a referral, contact us.
