Moorpark place

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.

"Each individual resident had a dedicated support team who we found to be very committed, knowledgeable and caring... Depending upon ability and state of health a great deal of effort was made to ensure that residents got out and about as often as possible and when within the complex were able to engage in the variety of activities and interests available" (Care Inspectorate, July 2017)

To read more about why the Care Inspectorate rated our service as "very good" with "excellent" for quality of care and support, please click:

As part of Moorpark’s continuing development we are in the process of attaining accreditation with the National Autistic Society (NAS).  Moorpark has clear vision and mission which is duly supported and strengthened through organisational goals and objectives.  Moorpark want to continue to develop a positive culture, with motivational leaders and inspired employees.  We  believe NAS accreditation will enrich our environment of openness and trust in ways that are transparent and empowering.

Care at Moorpark Place

Specialist Autism Service

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 environment

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.

People we support

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.
