The five-bed Ardlui House is used to provide residential short breaks, between one night and two weeks long, for children and young people who have communication difficulties, complex health, physical or learning disabilities, sensory impairment and ASD.

Breaks include activities planned to the young person’s individual needs. The service is registered to support individuals from birth to 24 years old in age appropriate groups.
