At Moorpark Place, we provide residential care and support for day-to-day living for men and women on the autistic spectrum.
Our 25 individual houses are linked by a social hub, where residents can take part in group and solo activities.
Set in the lush countryside near the town of Kilbirnie in Ayshire, we are well established within local communities, we have great links to Glasgow, as well as the towns of Ayr, Kilmarnock and Largs.

We believe we provide a unique service in a unique environment. Each of our residents has their own individual home and their own Support Worker who oversees their care on a daily basis.
Each resident has their own care plan so that they can live a life that is meaningful to them. This can look very different for each person depending upon their own goals and interests and family involvement.
We give our residents the opportunity to grow and develop in a nurturing and forward thinking way, together with everyone who is important to the individual.
Our layout here at Moorpark Place is different to many other specialist Autism services in the UK. Our community consists of 25 individual houses with some communal facilities. We have been accredited by the National Autistic Society for the level of care we provide.
We're always looking to add facilities and introduce new activities to help our residents develop and gain new skills.
We support adults, men and women, who are on the Autistic Spectrum. Most of our residents need our ongoing support to carry out everyday tasks and to manage living on their own.
It's lovely jubbly living here, I like having my own house.
I can honestly say this is the best job I've ever had. Always at the forefront of our mind is that each person is unique and having autism is not what defines them.
Moorpark is a fine place, I like to cook my Christmas dinner and open presents in my house. I like watching DVDs or movies at the Hub.
Working with residents and their families
We encourage our residents, their relatives and loved ones to drop-in on weekly open meetings with our team.
Registered manager, Michael Sneddon, is supported by two deputy managers, alongside a clinical psychologist, speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, a music tutor, a health and wellbeing instructor and support workers.
