Clare House located in Dunblane, Stirlingshire was the first service in Scotland to exclusively provide support for male and females with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) aged between 20 and 50 years old.
Clare House consists of nine spacious en-suite bedrooms situated across the first and second floors. A large homely lounge, dining room and activity room are within the main house which has an adjoining conservatory. There is a large mature garden with outside dining area, gazebo and Jacuzzi.
Four self-contained cottages are also adjacent to the main house where individuals are supported to lead a more independent life whilst still having access to the support team.
The team at Clare House actively encourage the people they support to access activities and hobbies in the local community as independently as possible. This includes attending football and rugby clubs, Tae Kwon Do, horse-riding, drama groups and enjoying community life.
The service has its own transport to support this and there are good links to public transport with a train station and bus routes a short walk away.
Developing daily living skills such as cooking and cleaning is a key focus to build confidence and greater independence. The team also support the management of finances and help individuals to seek out local work opportunities.
Some individuals living at Clare House also currently volunteer and raise funds for charity.

Clare House is the best place that I have lived in because it has helped me to lose weight because when I moved I was 24 stone but now I am 10 1/2. I felt better for it, the staff are very nice and helpful to me. Help me through my P.W.S – sometimes it’s easy other times it’s hard when I see food when I am out and about.Supported Individual - January 2017
Clare house is a house with PWS, it helps me with my weight and I get to do a lot of walking for my exercise which I love. I go to the enable club on a Friday night for a wee dance which I really enjoy. The staff are very good also. My room is nice and has lots of space for my keyboard, guitar and to dance to my wii. The food is excellent at Clare House.Supported individual - May 2016
