Welcome to the Braid House website

Braid House Day Centre is a leading day care provider for Livingston and surrounding areas in West Lothian. We have grown over more than 30 years to become the largest day care centre in West Lothian and a highly valued resource. Our community provides us with significant support. Braid House is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status.

Our services improve life for our clients and those involved in their care. Clients remain our core focus and we will continue to strive to provide the highest quality of service and to satisfy the ever increasing demand. We will meet new challenges, continuing to invest in staff and volunteer training. Our services will be developed to ensure that we support older people to have as good a quality of life as possible by offering activities, learning opportunities and socialisation. We will support their physical and mental health, and well-being through a reduction in social isolation and engaging them in meaningful activity. We will engage older people in their local community by providing places in which to socialise, learn new skills or re-learnj skills for daily living.

As a member of Optima, The Federation of Voluntary Sector Day Support Services in West Lothian, Braid House entered an agreed service contract with its partner and core-funder West Lothian Health and Social care Partnership (WELH & SCP), in February 2016 continuing to March 2019, with an option for a further 24 months based on performance and review.
The Service Specification is available on download.

We are registered with the Care Inspectorate and our Manager is registered with the Scottish Social Services Council.

Our Business Plan sets out how we will deliver our mission, and continue to play our part in improving life for older people in our community.
