About Options Aberdeen

Our newly expanded service has been developed in partnership with Aberdeen City Council and Grampian Autistic Society. We provide an exciting mix of care at home, community and residential short breaks enabling children with complex disabilities and their families to be supported through a tailored programme of activities which offer the children new experiences and the opportunity to make new friends whilst offering their family the crucial chance to recharge and refresh their batteries. The Hub also provides holistic family support through a menu of services that support and complement direct support offered to children and young people.

“Aberlour Options Aberdeen for us has been a godsend. Our lives have changed at home. They listen to your views and try and help with whatever is the problem.” Parent.
