Common Thread offer therapeutic residential care and education for children of both genders aged between 8 and 18 years. We offer crisis/emergency placements as well as short, medium and long term placements.

We have three schools providing education for young people who have become detached from mainstream education. We aim to make our young people’s experience with us a really positive time, encouraging growth in confidence, achievement and attainment. Each young person has a unique IEP, which is aligned to his or her individual care plan. Therapeutic strategies can be put in place for each young person and are also applied in the educational environment.

Our three schools are situated in Dumfries, Kilmarnock and Falkirk.
