On 14 May, Kenneth participated in the sod-cutting ceremony for the development of 17 new social care homes at Todhill Country Centre, which has been taken over by the Richmond Fellowship Scotland (RFS) charity.
RFS employs 3,000 and supports 2,500 people across Scotland with a broad range of needs to live as independently as possible in their own homes and communities.
RFS provides personalised, high-quality, community-based support services for those who require it. Some clients may have mental health difficulties, learning disabilities or autism; others dementia, alcohol or drug issues or an offending background.
The new £2 million Todhill development will ensure RFS continues to provide high quality services to meet the unique needs and aspirations of the individuals who need it.
The new accommodation will be open in May 2020, with a second phase commencing shortly after, in order to provide free holiday respite for those who use RFS services.
