Buchanan House sits just outside the village of Saline, close to Dunfermline in Fife. The Service consists of a 5 bedroom bungalow which can be home for up to 4 young people. The house has a very homely feel with ample space for young people to relax after school and watch TV or be involved in activities with other residents and staff. There is a small education facility and a meeting room on site. The school includes a fully equipped classroom, home economics room and mini gym. Young people can also access education on our Bathgate campus which offers a range of core and vocational subjects. We work in close partnership with local mainstream schools and colleges for placements when appropriate.
Although Buchanan is situated rurally we are close to Dunfermline which offers a large shopping centre and options for activities including cinema, golf, swimming pool, go-karting and more. There is a well established staff team at Buchanan who are committed to providing our young people with a nurturing, therapeutic experience. All staff receive a comprehensive induction and ongoing training to ensure they are equipped to carry out their role to a high standard. We are fortunate to have 3 acres of land at Buchanan which as well as allowing young people plenty of space to play also means we can keep hens and rear pet lambs every year.
