We've been busy curating a hallway gallery full of familiar and historical images of Edinburgh, to encourage conversation, memories, and comfort for people supported.

Our lovely team spent time sourcing pictures that had meaning for the people they support.

Margaret was brought-up in a local convent children’s home, and had many happy memories of her education, Christmas, and the friendly nuns. Hazel, a local support practitioner, was able to do some digging and managed to find three pictures of the convent to include in the gallery. This meant a huge amount to both Margaret and Hazel.

The gallery has become a real talking point, with people reminiscing about days gone by, and the huge changes seen in Edinburgh over the past 50 years or so. And, its set-up in the hallway means that everyone gets time to stop and admire the pictures.

These small examples of person-centred support happen every single day across Carr Gomm services in Scotland. We truly believe in supporting everyone differently, according to their individual requirements, desired personal outcomes, and their dreams and aspirations for the future.
