Moorpark Place is a modern purpose built service with 25 individual houses providing specialist support in helping people with everyday living. The majority of clients are given one on one care, 24 hours a day.
Isabel Archibald, General Manager said: “The team at Moorpark Place has worked exceptionally hard over the past two and a half years to achieve this accreditation. It is a significant achievement and highlights the first class services The Huntercombe Group has to offer. The team has worked effectively together and will continue to improve the quality of service provided at Moorpark Place.”
The Huntercombe Group is a leading independent healthcare provider offering specialist treatment in a range of areas, including mental health, with numerous hospitals and care centres situated throughout England and Scotland. Moorpark Place is accessible to anyone in Scotland.
Dr Robert Moffat, National Director of the National Autistic Society (NAS) Scotland said, “The National Autistic Society Scotland welcomes news of the high quality standards achieved by Moorpark Place.
“Autism is a lifelong disability that can be expressed in a variety of complex ways. At its heart, Autism Accreditation ensures that rigorous standards of quality are met by professionals who support children and adults with autism.
“Although there are many good examples of support for people with autism, this is not the case throughout Scotland. Autism Accreditation helps ensure a standard of care and support that NAS Scotland would like to see made more readily available, enabling people affected by autism and their families to access the same educational, health and social opportunities many others take for granted.”
