Our Residential Accommodation aims to help and care for young people who are unable to live at home, or who no longer need secure care.

Rossie is located in a beautiful rural setting with 150 acres of woodland, close to the sea and mountains. Our staff and young people often make the most of this therapeutic space by exploring wildlife and benefiting from a more peaceful and slower pace of life. The unique environment helps create a sense of belonging, with many of our young people telling us that Rossie feels “like home”. The squirrels and deer like it too!

Rossie has three residential houses and these are named Annan, Esk, and Forth House – after Scottish rivers. Annan and Esk provide ‘close support’ which means young people benefit from higher levels of support from care staff. All of our young people receive and experience nurturing care, support and encouragement that is individualised to their needs and circumstances. Forth House is a traditional family style house which further prepares the young person for living in their community.
