Danshell Learning Disability and Autism Services 

Danshell supports and cares for adults living with a learning disability or autism in specialist hospitals and residential services. Our aim is to deliver effective and outcome based services within person centred, professional care environments. We support individuals with a learning disability, who are on the autistic spectrum or have mental or physical ill health. We set high standards for ourselves in the delivery of care, and most importantly, we put service users at the centre of everything we do.

Our hospitals provide treatment and rehabilitation in safe and structured environments to adults with learning disabilities and complex needs, with a diagnosis of autism and/or a mental health disorder. There is clinical and therapeutic input from the multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, nurses and support staff.

Many services offer an integrated or separate step down facility for service users, allowing them to move along their care pathway to more independent living.

Three of our hospitals provide specialist assessment and healthcare services for adults on the autistic spectrum with learning disabilities and associated complex needs.

We can accept referrals for people who may or may not be detained under the Mental Health Act or the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act.
