ENABLE Scotland Orkney

Read Erland's ENABLE Scotland story so far ..

Erland lives in his own home and ENABLE Scotland helps him to live independently by providing 24 hour support to carry out daily tasks and activities he is interested in.

My ENABLE Scotland staff support me with lots of different activities like going to the airport to watch the planes, walking my neighbours’ dogs, going to the cinema and partying! They also help me to plan and go on up to three holidays each year.”

Having the support to do the things he wants to do and follow his own lifestyle choices, such as being a vegetarian, are important to Erland.

“ I like inviting friends over for tea and I can cook for them with support from my staff and family. My staff take a step back when I have friends round, but I know they are there if I need them.”

Our Orkney office opened in 1997. Today we continue to help people across Orkney to find the support they need to live the life they choose.

Our office is located at: Kirkwall Travel Centre, West Castle Street, Kirkwall, KW15 1GU, Tel: 01856 871287.
