Welcome to the first edition of our brand new
community magazine, Capability Scotland
We’re delighted to bring you all kinds of great
stories about how our services are operating and
all the new projects we’ve been working on. We
plan to publish two editions each year for you –
our fantastic supporters and community – as well
as providing our customers with their own tailormade
This year marks a special event for all of us
involved with Capability Scotland — our 75th
anniversary year. And what a milestone it is.
Even under the cloud of the Covid-19 pandemic,
we’ve found time not only to continue delivering
the exemplary Caring Support you know and
expect from us but also time to celebrate our 75th
birthday, doing so in Capability Scotland style!
We started our anniversary year in lockdown,
unable to spend time together as a whole charity
and unable to celebrate in the way we would have
wanted. However, as the year has progressed,
and restrictions have eased, we’ve been able to
hold great events like our summer Olympics at
Upper Springland in Perth, our mad hatter party
at Junction 52 in Glasgow, and a whole host of
other celebrations. And the fun isn’t stopping
yet! We’re extending our celebrations into May
2022, and I hope that we will be able to celebrate
together with you, in some way, in person, soon.
Enjoy reading this first edition of Capability
Scotland Matters and hearing about all
the great things we’ve been up to –
and tell us what you think or let us
know how you can help us.

Christmas not too far away at all,
I want to extend my best wishes to
you and your loved ones for the festive

This year, we launched our new toddler group at
Stanmore House School in Lanark. It is aimed at
children aged 0-4 years with complex support
needs, and their parents and carers, to come
together in a relaxed way, forming a support
We’re keeping our new service free of charge to
ensure there are no social barriers to accessing our
group. In our first term, we have welcomed children
and their families to join in the fun and experience
some high-level interactions provided by our team
of professionals (teachers, nurses, therapists and
more) to promote children’s all-round development.
Our state-of-the-art facilities at Stanmore House
ensure that each individual child’s needs are met
through observation and, over time, tailoring
a service to support them. Some of these are a
hydrotherapy pool, rebound therapy, digital suite,
sensory rooms, salon, cinema and an extensive
outdoor area to explore and learn about nature.
Since the formation of the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989, all
children have had the right to be protected from
harm and to be encouraged to reach their
full potential. At our Sunshine
Toddlers Group, our little
learners are at the heart
of everything we do. We
endorse these beliefs,
31: the child’s right
an environment that promotes these rights through
learning, enjoyment and social interaction.
Our little ones always have a ball, as do our
parents! Play is so important, especially for
children with complex and additional needs, as it
helps them to develop new skills for learning, life
and work such as better hand-eye coordination,
increased cognitive skills, increased social skills,
develops memory, helps to develop problem-solving
skills, expressing ideas and emotions, develops
fine motor skills, promotes happiness, promotes
sleeping, develops muscle tone, balance and
control, encourages concentration and alertness, all
whilst having some fun!
Mum of Ollie, one of our toddlers, said “the
Sunshine Toddlers Group has been beneficial to
Ollie’s development. The staff are caring and have
well thought out weekly activities. It’s a great space
to let the kids run around and interact with other
Benefits for the Children
Historically, sociologists have traditionally studied
children within the context of family. Contemporary
views, however, are somewhat broader now and
consider the child as an important part of their
own community and wider society (Welch, 2008).
Here at the Sunshine Toddlers Group, we view the
child as an active learner, as they investigate the
world around them and become curious about
objects and opportunities they may be presented
with. We aim to give each of our little learners the
skills to actively participate in the community life of
our school and prepare them for their educational
journey ahead. We model our practice around
GIRFEC’s wellbeing indicators (Getting It Right
For Every Child), ensuring each child feels safe,
healthy, achieving, nurtured, active, respected,
responsible and included. Initial conversations with
parents highlighted the challenges their children
faced and the barriers that inhibited them from
learning and accessing other childcare services.
We work closely with parents and carers to ensure
these barriers are broken down and allow their
children to socialise and interact with each other,
thus becoming more accepting of change, new
faces and new experiences.
Benefits for Parents and Carers
During our planning stages, we identified the
importance of building a community for parents
and carers to come together and support each
other. We were aware of the ongoing complications
that the Covid-19 pandemic brought and identified
the additional need for promoting positive mental
health amongst service users who may have
found themselves feeling isolated throughout. By
setting up the Sunshine Toddlers Group, we offer
a destination experience that they can factor into
their weekly schedule and look forward to coming
to each week.
Our professional team are also on hand bringing a
wealth of knowledge to our group whereby parents
and carers can ask questions apropos their child’s
learning and health needs. This is an added comfort
to them as they have a platform for discussion
without judgement or fear of sounding foolish. We
even recognise the value of just listening to parents
and giving them an opportunity to share how they
feel, assuring them that their confidentiality is
respected at all times.
The parents and
carers are invited
the activities on
for play and
can replicate at
home and… it’s also
lots of fun too! This
level of interaction and
sharing experiences with
their child is so valuable
and creates beautiful memories
for all. This can lead to a sense
of empowerment that may help them to make
important decisions and influence positive changes.
Benefits for Stanmore House School
By engaging with families sooner in their child’s
life, all staff involved can reap the benefits and
rewards of seeing progress and development firsthand,
thus giving a great sense of achievement and
job satisfaction each week. There is also potential
for children to progress onto our school for their
primary and secondary educational years, thus
securing the future of the school.
We believe that the Sunshine Toddlers Group will
strengthen our links with the local community,
enabling us to flourish and be part of something
greater. In making new connections with the wider
community, we are breaking down social barriers
and promoting an inclusive approach from all
members of society.
Hopes for the Future
We are confident that the Sunshine Toddlers Group
will go from strength to strength and become a
sustained, long-term service in our school’s (and
charity’s) portfolio. We have visions of using our
skills and expertise to, one day, provide workshops
for parents and carers to help them help their child
to reach their full potential.
75 years ago, a group of parents and health workers got together in
Edinburgh, unhappy with the way their children with Cerebral Palsy were
treated. They formed the charity which would become Capability Scotland.
With ambitions for a rightfully fairer Scotland for their children back in 1946,
we say thanks to our founders, and a big happy birthday to our charity which
now helps disabled people across the country live their best lives.
Our services across Scotland have been celebrating in various ways
throughout the year, some of the events we have
showcased here for you to enjoy.
Congratulations and happy birthday to everyone in our CS-community,
whether you’re supporter, customer, staff or friend!
Here’s to the next 75 and beyond.
Upper Springland, in Perth, celebrate 75 years with a summer Olympics day.
Upper Springland consists of four distinct service provisions. Annaty, Tayview, and Rosiebank &
Tummel are permanent or long-term residential areas for many of our customers, where they live
the very best lives of their own design. Our fourth provision, The Studio, offers a day opportunities
service for customers. Many customers dressed up to represent individual countries and lots of
fun was had with our own version of the Olympic Games!
Stanmore House Residential, in Lanark, celebrate 75 years at their super heroes party.
Stanmore House campus consists of Stanmore House School, our Sunshine Toddlers Group,
Stanmore House Life Skills, and our Stanmore House Residential, home to some of Scotland’s
greatest children! The young people who live at Stanmore House had a great time meeting some
super heroes - and having a good party.
Wallace Court, in Elderslie, held their Las Vegas themed Glitz & Glamour Ball.
Ever partying and living life to the fullest, the customers of Wallace Court live with us on a
permanent basis, too. They’re based in Elderslie, near Johnstone. Rumour has it there were lots
of celebrities in attendance at this party and very strict security.
We couldn’t get on the guest list...
Dumfries & Galloway create Schugie the Caterpillar.
Customers at our Dumfries & Galloway Services created a memorial stone caterpillar,
which was officially “opened” by visitors from the local community, including staff
from Tesco! More about our Dumfries & Galloway Services on pages 16 and 17.
Junction 52, in Glasgow, held a Mad Hatter Party
A fantastic Mad Hatter party for customers and friends! Junction 52 is one of our day
opportunities services where customers attend daily and go home afterwards.
Lanarkshire Houses, in Lanark & Carluke, celebrate with a 75th Halloween Party
Lanarkshire Houses is one of our care residences where people permanently live with us.
Celebrating 75 years and getting out after a long time inside, customers enjoyed dressing up
for Halloween and sang happy birthday to Capability Scotland. Customers enjoyed getting out
of their houses to go to the party!
North Lanarkshire Services held their circus party!
Our North Lanarkshire Services, who provide care at home and community-based services,
held their circus-themed party at our offices in Wishaw! Great to have so many customers from
across the region attending.
In each edition we will be showcasing one
of our services, highlighting their excellent
work, introducing the staff and customers and
sharing the exciting developments we have in
store. If you would like to learn more about our
work or would like to get involved please get in
touch. In this edition, we’re (re)introducing our
expanded services in Dumfries and Galloway.
Capability Scotland has been part of the Dumfries
and Galloway community for over 20 years.
Dumfries and Galloway Integrated Service (DGIS)
provides support to those living with a physical
disability between the ages of 16-64 years. The
service is part-funded by the local authority
(Dumfries and Galloway Council) and NHS
Dumfries and Galloway. Currently, the service has
four years of funding, awarded in 2019.
DGIS currently offers a wide range of personcentred
support, consisting of:
• Light touch emotional support
• Psychological support in living with a physical
disability and coming to terms with illness
• Signposting to relevant agencies such as other
charities and partnership agencies like Citizens
• Support to regain employment and volunteering
• Prevent social isolation through developing
group activities and peer support
• Support to build healthy communities
• Partnership working within local communities
• Promote aspects of healthy living through
• Liaise with other professionals to enhance a
person's wellbeing through building meaningful
Towards the end of 2019, Capability Scotland was
approached initially by Dumfries and Galloway
Health and Social Care Partnership and then
by Compass Brain Injury Specialists to discuss
transferring responsibility of delivering a service for
people with an acquired brain injury in Dumfries
and Galloway to Capability Scotland, in order to
ensure the long-term sustainability of the services.
An agreement was sought and received from the
relevant agencies to transfer and/or extend the
duration of funding agreements from Compass
to Capability Scotland to allow the services to

this meant we would now be responsible for
delivering our DGIS service and we would now be
responsible for delivering a range of additional
An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
A community-based support and rehabilitation
provision for people living with an ABI. The ethos
of the service is to provide vital enablement to
people with an ABI to maximise their ability to live
independent, socially included and fulfilling lives.
An ABI Assessment Service:
This is delivered by an Assessment Coordinator.
The service provides assessment and information
to people living with an ABI. This role complements
the ABI Rehabilitation Service and creates a
smooth pathway for individuals to focus on their
rehabilitation either in the community or within our
A Child & Families Acquired Brain Injury
This service works to improve the quality of life for
children under 18 who have an ABI caused by, for
example, road accidents, falls, stroke, meningitis,
tumours and foetal alcohol syndrome. The Child
and Families Coordinator provides support to
the families of children living with an ABI, raises
awareness of issues for young people with an
ABI and provides ABI prevention presentations to
schools within Dumfries and Galloway.
A Self-Directed Support Independent Advice
and Brokerage Service:
The Self-Directed Support service consists of two
Independent Advice and Support: this service
delivers advice to people who wish to access care.
In addition to this, the Link Practitioners assist
people looking for care to become good employers
and find Personal Assistants they directly employ,
providing tailored support to the individuals need
and empowering them to exercise their choice and
control over the way their care is delivered.
Self-Directed Support Payroll Service: this
service provides essential payroll support to people
who choose to become employers of Personal
Assistants. It provides all assistance required in
relation to paying the salaries of the Personal
The transfer of Compass into the Capability
Scotland family was completed in April 2020. All
staff in post at the time joined Capability Scotland
and the property at Afton Drive, in Dumfries, was
gifted to us by the Compass Board of Trustees. This
provides accommodation for both a building-based
day support service and all office-based staff,
allowing us to move from our offices in Nithbank
Since March 2020, the focus has been on
maintaining services in Dumfries and Galloway and
supporting people through the Covid-19 pandemic.
In response to the lockdown, services have had to
change their delivery model and have had to adjust
to providing support by online platforms, telephone
and email. This time has, however, allowed us the
opportunity to have a period of consolidation where
we have begun to review the current provision of
services as part of ensuring long term sustainability
and begin to identify opportunities for future
growth, maximising our physical assets and staffing
resources. Moving forward our aims are to:
Reflect on and review our DGIS service
experience over the last year, engaging with our
customers to listen and respond to their feedback in
relation to the online activity and, if this is positive,
include this as a new offer to our service.
Review the entire ABI service delivery model
and deliver efficient and outstanding services. We
are currently working with The Lens Initiative, who
are assisting us with creating a wraparound service
model for people living with an ABI. We are working
along with our customers and our staff to ensure
we get the model of care right for them, which will
then allow us to approach our funders for continued
funding and new funders to allow us to grow the

are totally committed to ensuring the services they
deliver are of the highest standard and that the
people we support are getting the right support at
the right time for them.
In summer 2021 Capability Scotland
collaborated with the Scottish Poetry Library
(SPL) to develop a poem to celebrate our 75th
Anniversary. The relationship has gone from
strength to strength and we are proud to share
all we have achieved together.
At the time we approached the SPL to develop
our 75th anniversary poem we were delighted to
learn that they were interested in engaging with
disabled audiences and exploring how individuals
with alternative communication experience poetry.
As our relationship developed so has our project
and we were delighted to have the opportunity
to introduce poetry to our pupils at Stanmore
House School, but to do so in a way that took into
account their unique communication and learning
needs. This allowed us to meet the objectives of the
SPL, establish a working relationship, and deliver
a tangible learning experience to our pupils at
Three individual workshops were arranged with
classes at Stanmore, guiding the pupils through a
variety of sensory stories, one about a shipwreck
at sea, another about being lost in the desert, and
the final about camping in the jungle, within each
story a poem was introduced and this acted as the
focus for each workshop. The stories performed
by Dan were developed around the poems written
and read by Leyla. The engagement and interaction
from our young people showed a great success in
introducing poetry to an audience where one might
not necessarily think poetry would find a place -
and it absolutely did find a place!
Listening to a poem by Leyla
Discussing poetry and working together
We engaged with poet Leyla Josephine
(www.leylajosephine.co.uk), as well as a sensory
story teller, Dan Serridge (danserridge.wordpress.
com), to introduce poetry to the young people and
to bring to life the written word of poetry whilst
creating an interactive and sensory experience.
In the new year we will celebrate our partnership
with an event at the Scottish Poetry Library in
Edinburgh, bringing together all those who have
been involved in this innovative project.
We’ve been delighted to learn that our work with
the Scottish Poetry Library will continue beyond
this project, so keep an eye on our social media and
news for updates, as we work together with our new
We’re proud and excited to be Heriot’s Rugby
Club’s latest charity partnership. The twoyear
partnership will support delivering rugby
coaching in a disability-accessible way to the
customers of Capability Scotland, allowing
some excited budding athletes the chance at
some professional training.
The partnership will also allow club members to
engage with a new community of disabled people,
providing new experiences and learning.
Brian Logan, Chief Executive of Capability Scotland
said: “We are incredibly excited to be partnering
with such a storied club as Heriots, who have been
an integral part of their community for many years.
This partnership will offer opportunities for people
we support to engage with the club and for club
members to engage with our services. Of course,
we are delighted Heriots have expressed a desire to
help deliver a few ambitious fundraising events!”

St John’s Road in Corstorphine, Edinburgh opened
its doors on 1st November 2021 after four months
of both structural and non-structural alterations,
refurbishment and redecoration.
The area is not new to us, we have always had
strong connections to Corstorphine with our
previous offices and services based at Rhumore
and Westerlea. Whilst stunning buildings in their
own right, they were less able to provide the
functionality we demand as a disability charity.
With a relatively short stint in Haymarket while
we established the new hubs for our Edinburgh
Services, we had been on the lookout for our longterm
base and are delighted to have found that,
back almost where it all started 75 years ago, in
Even with the huge strides forward in disability
awareness over the last 75 years since our
inception, we recognised that some level of
alterations would likely be required of any building
to meet our high standards and make it an office
truly accessible for all our staff and customers to
enjoy. That said, the timing wasn’t ideal with the
exceptional demand for building works just as the
industry was coming out of a near 18-month hiatus
and the supply and distribution challenges due to
that we were able
to bring the project in on budget and (nearly)
on time is a testament to the commitment of
everyone involved to deliver a great standard of
accommodation with the improvements we deem
fundamental to our charity’s ethos.
By enlarging the disabled access toilet to
accommodate a track and hoist and showers
facilities for use of the whole building we are
showing what it means to have truly accessible
amenities. We have also removed some glazing to
establish an additional level fire escape, and in so
doing we can finally host Customer Engagement
Meetings and Main Board Sessions in Edinburgh.
Another priority when developing the new office
space was to create the facility for delivering
our sector-leading in-house staff training
programme. Be it in person, or through our state
of the art technology, St John’s Road can fulfil our
commitment to the continuous development of
Capability Scotland’s staff.
The St John’s Road team is made up of a mix of
relatively new faces for whom this office is the only
one they’ve experienced, but there are also old hats
who have packed up and moved around the West
of the city centre more times than they care to
remember. What they all share is the commitment
to deliver an exemplary service to enable our
staff across the country to continue providing
outstanding care and support
to our customers. To be able
to do that from such a
bright, welcoming and
inclusive space is a

The quality of care at Upper Springland has always
been and continues to be outstanding. The existing
premises in Perth are now 40 years old and are
becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to
maintain. There is also the need to protect against
a future flood risk from the River Tay, which is only
likely to intensify with climate change.
This potentially negative scenario has created
the opportunity to ask our customers and staff to
help completely re-imagine our services. To allow
this to happen effectively we have created a ‘Coproduction’
role within Capability Scotland to work
directly with customers and ensure their needs and
ideas are embedded into new service and design
Our experience of developing and managing
supported living accommodation over several
decades has led us to recognise that mixed
communities strengthen social cohesion, and
this positively impacts on everyone within that
community. We believe this approach will assist
our customers to access social networks, amenities,
services, and facilities that will help them to thrive.
We have selected a fantastic site at Bertha Park
located around four miles from Upper Springland.
This will allow us to maintain our important
presence in Perth and to be at the heart of the new
Bertha Park “village” as it grows over the next 20
years. The aim is to deliver new models of housing
and care, ready by 2025, that will be the best to be
found in the UK.
Capability Scotland’s experience, the availability
of land and willing partners at Bertha Park gives
us a unique opportunity to challenge and help
break down the barriers many disabled people face
and to develop an exemplar national residential
resource to serve Scotland and beyond.
We are committed to the concept of disabled
people being able to live in their own home in the
area that they choose - wherever it is possible. We
also recognise that there will always be demand
for more specialist residential care for those with
the most complex needs. This will be at the heart
of what we provide at Bertha Park working in
partnership, to develop care solutions and facilitate
greater choice of housing options, with the ultimate
ambition of offering choices typically available
to other members of the community to live in their
own tenancies but benefiting from the facilities and
social aspects of our core facility.
To develop new ‘enabling accommodation’ for
all our customers which supports updated care
practice we have commissioned research to
help us develop exemplar service, operational,
technological and design practice. We are
now looking for grant sources that would allow
researchers to monitor long term operational
progress and help ensure we continually improve
our service offering. We have also been mindful
that no two people are the same and expectations
and needs can change over time.
This is without doubt the most significant,
most complex and most ambitious project that

Cherry & Julie
For 75 years, we have been at the forefront of developing and providing services for disabled children
and adults throughout Scotland, changing people’s attitudes toward disability, and embracing the
opportunities created through progress in technology. So much of the work we have done has been
possible thanks to donations from our loyal supporters. Over the past 18 months, your gifts have had an
even greater impact than ever before.
“Last year our world was turned upside down with the onset of Covid-19. Regular visits were no
longer possible. For us, Zoom wasn’t an option as it was detrimental to Julie’s well-being. We didn’t
see our daughter for a year. It was heart-breaking. Thank goodness for the Wallace Court team.
They assured us that Julie was doing well and they were keeping up the morale of the residents
by having extra activities like silent discos (where people dance to music listened to on wireless
headphones) and virtual music sessions. Regular photos of Julie enjoying herself helped put
my mind at rest. Most importantly, I knew they were keeping her safe. I can’t put into words how
amazing it was being able to see her and hug her again now that restrictions have lessened.”
- Cherry, Julies Mum, resident at Wallace Court
As we move forward and begin to adjust to a new way of life, we ask that you give what you can to
Capability Scotland so that we may continue providing the very best services, experience, and care to
disabled children and adults across Scotland. Please give generously.
