The quality of care and staffing has been evaluated as ‘Very Good’ by the recent Care Inspectorate report and the young people themselves value the respectful way they are treated. They report that staff are good company and that there is an ethos of respect throughout Old Mill. Above all, they feel safe, something that some of
them have never experienced before.

The Old Mill offers 24 hour, 365 day a year residential care. There is also the provision for on and off site education depending on the specific needs of the child.
