About Options Ayrshire
Our Service is a busy respite care unit for children and young people with additional support needs, including
complex learning and physical disabilities. As well as providing short residential breaks the service offers
outreach to families and is also involved in the managing and running of an after school club as well as a busy
Easter and Summer play scheme.
Our after school club is based outside of Ayr within a building at Mosshill Industrial Estate. Our disability support
service offers a safe, nurturing environment for a child to come and play for a short break that gives their
families a rest from their caring role. During that break, children enjoy a range of fun activities and
experiences with our staff who specialise in taking care of children with disabilities.
