Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

A To r y g l e n - b a s e d mul­ti­cul­tural cen­tre has been given a glow­ing re­view by in­spec­tors just a few months af­ter it opened.

Or­chard Grove Day Care Cen­tre is based on Prospecthill Cir­cus.

It opened on Novem­ber 30 last year with an aim to “host both Mus­lim and lo­cal in­dige­nous com­mu­ni­ties un­der new ar­range­ments of in­te­gra­tion and co-lo­ca­tion.”

In­spec­tors ar­rived unan­nounced at the fa­cil­ity twice in March be­fore a fol­low up visit.

Their find­ings were pub­lished this month, with the cen­tre scor­ing “very good” for qual­ity of care and sup­port, qual­ity if en­vi­ron­ment, qual­ity of staffing and qual­ity of man­age­ment and lead­er­ship.

Ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised by staff were praised, with ser­vice users en­cour­aged to take part.

They also heard from ser­vice users and their fam­i­lies, who said they had set­tled in well and were very happy us­ing the fa­cil­ity. Even the food on the menu was praised.

Staff and man­age­ment also scored highly, with ser­vice users be­ing at ease with staff mem­bers and en­joy­ing in­ter­ac­tion with them.

In s p e c t o r s m a d e no rec­om­men­da­tions other than urg­ing the ser­vice to con­tinue with their good work.

The re­port, which can be viewed on­line in full, con­cludes: “We found that the ser­vice pro­vides a very good stan­dard of care and sup­port from a ded­i­cated staff team. Ser­vice users had a range of ac­tiv­i­ties in place.”

Or­chard Grove can ac­com­mo­date 30 peo­ple from multi-cul­tural na­tion­al­i­ties each day and is cur­rently open from Mon­day to Fri­day.
