Kibble provides residential care and support to children and young people, aged 5-26, who have been referred by local authorities. Due to a range of circumstances, the young people are unable to live at home and therefore live in a residential care home on campus or in the community. We also provide supported accommodation in the community.
Young People we Support
Many of the young people in residential care have a range of complex needs and have experienced trauma or neglect. Each young person is unique; therefore, we offer a tailored approach that responds to the needs and circumstances of the young people and their families. Young people are supported by our full range of integrated services to ensure the best outcomes for each of them.
Dedicated Care and Support
Our team of highly experienced and personable staff provide the 24/7 care and support. They are more than just staff, they are familiar faces that are committed to supporting the young people.
Residential Care Homes
Our care houses provide a safe, comfortable and supportive home for young people who have experienced trauma and/or neglect. Depending on their individual needs, young people will stay in a residential care house that provides the right level of support required at that time.
We have fifteen care houses, nine located in our Paisley campus and six within the community. All young people have access to our full range of services including: psychological support, education, and employability support to help them achieve the best outcomes.
Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC)
We follow the GIRFEC model of care, ensuring each young person gets dedicated care and support to meet their individual needs. Due to past trauma or neglect, young people have a range of complex needs and each has their own personalised care plan.
What Makes Our Service Successful?

- Specialist Intervention Services (SIS)
The SIS team provides psychological assessment and therapeutic support for all young people at Kibble. The team come from a range of professional backgrounds, which allows us to take a more comprehensive multi-disciplinary approach to supporting every child in our care.
- Integrated Services
Young people in residential care are supported by Kibble’s range of integrated services. Our practice is becoming increasingly trauma-informed and our range of services include:
– psychological and therapeutic support
– employability training
– housing support
- Supported transitions
We offer supported transitions when young people are ready to move on from residential care. This could be returning to the family home, beginning a foster care placement, or progressing to independent living.
