A home away from home, where people come to have fun, safe in the knowledge that their care and support needs will be met.
Riddrievale House provides short break respite for up to nine adults, in a comfortable, relaxing environment. When people come to stay with us, they are on holiday, and we try to make it as fun as possible. Alongside residential respite we also deliver day care and run numerous group outings, using our specially adapted minibus.
Whether you’re looking to relax or hoping to do things you wouldn’t do at home, we’ll make sure you get what you want out of your time at Riddrievale.
How to Get Involved
If you or someone you know would like to come and stay at Riddrievale here’s what to do:
- Firstly, phone the project to arrange a visit, to see if it’s what you’re looking for. Normally you’d be accompanied by a family member, social worker / care manager.
- Submit an application form via email or post. (You can download one here 🡆 Respite Application Pack). We’ll then add you to the waiting list, and make an assessment of the application.
- Next we’ll come to visit you to get to know you a bit, so that we can be confident we can meet your needs.
- After that we’ll arrange a tea-time visit to the service, so that you can get more comfortable at Riddrievale; from there we’ll build up to you first overnight / two night stay.

You will be allocated a certain number of nights per year. We’re a fully personalised service; let us know when works for you and your family and wherever possible we’ll try and find dates that fit.
