The Care Inspectorate is an independent body which provides information about care services in Scotland, their inspection reports and their current grades are made available so that you can make an informed decision when choosing a care home or service.
In January 2018 our Day Centres' had an unannounced inspection from the Care Inspectorate. Two areas of the service were inspected and we are really pleased to report that we received a score of 5 (6 being the highest) for both Quality of Care and Support and Quality of Leadership and Management.
Our scores are a grade up on our last inspection and are reflective of the hard work and care that all the staff and volunteers put into each day. We are super pleased to share this with you and if you would like to read the full report click here.

The Scottish Government has introduced a new benefit called the Carers Allowance Supplement.
We will be holding a Drop in on Thursday 18th October from 9am to 2pm at PKAVS for anyone who would like more info about the 'Getting it Right for Cares Across Perth & Kinross' consultation.
Over the next 4-5 weeks, the Scottish Government wants to talk to older people about their experiences of Attendance Allowance, one of the benefits being devolved to Scotland.
