A short breaks service for children and young people with disabilities.

The Mallard provides a safe, stimulating and homely environment where young people can come and stay over. Our staff support them during their time here.

We’ve been providing residential short breaks at the Mallard for over 20 years, and we still love every minute we spend with the young people.

Our house is in Springburn, ten minutes from Glasgow city centre. Our young guests have their own ensuite bedroom, as well as access a large lounge/dining room, sensory room, spa and computer room. We also have a well-equipped outdoor space with sensory garden and summer house. Every part of the Mallard is wheelchair accessible.

We also have use of a wheelchair accessible car and mini bus.

Personal Plan and Key Worker
Everyone using the Mallard has a Personal Plan and a named Key Worker. The Key Worker spends time with the young person and their family and carers to ensure that they receive the highest standard of care and support. Together we consider, create and continually review a Personal Plan that will meet their needs and support their agreed outcomes.

Staying involved
We believe it’s in everyone’s best interests for young people and their families to be fully involved in what happens at the Mallard. We keep parents up to date by newsletter and events such as BBQs and parties.

Our wonderful staff
Our staff love working alongside young people, but they also take their responsibilities very seriously. They are all registered with the Scottish Social Care Council and are PVG checked. They take part in a programme of continual personal development to ensure they are able to deliver the highest level of care.
