    Moorpark Place is a specialist supported living service for adults who are on the Autistic Spectrum. Located in a peaceful and stunning setting in Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire, we specialise in providing supportive, therapeutic care.

    The layout at Moorpark Place is unique and different to many other specialist adult autism services in the UK. Our community consists of 25 individual houses set in their own grounds with some shared facilities.

    With this arrangement our residents can enjoy all aspects of individual living whilst being part of a smaller community.

    We support people who would struggle to live independently because they need help with everyday tasks and managing their own home.

    Our aim is to support our residents to have an enjoyable and engaging life, both on and off site.

    There is a communal gym with a gym instructor, conservatory, sunken trampoline and swing, plus a walled, sensory garden.

    There are regular community activities and residents are often seen socialising in the grounds.

    Moorpark Place is calm and tranquil and has a huge grassed area outside, where residents often walk and many have reported they feel calmer afterwards.

    The walled garden is kept as a quiet, sensory area.
