Spark of Genius Residential Care for Children and Young People.

Riverside House is a spacious building situated in East Ayrshire and is home to a maximum of six children and young people. Riverside is unique within Spark of Genius’ homes as it is situated in the heart of a small village. Being in the centre of a small community means Riverside House is ideal for supporting young people who are working towards gaining independent living skills and younger teenagers who enjoy being part of a community. There are great public travel links and Kilmarnock is only 10 minutes away on the bus.
