Guests have a proper break, their health and wellbeing is improved and their carer can relax, knowing that their loved one is having a great time and is well cared for.

Having come through the most challenging of times, the moment is now right for them to invest in exciting and ambitious plans for expansion. These plans will take them beyond the walls of Leuchie House and bring passion and expertise into communities around the country. Extending their purpose, creating new levels of income and as a result make them a bigger and more complex charity.
