Welcome to 


Thank you for visiting our website.  We have developed this ourselves so please let us know if you experience any difficulties while you are navigating around crannochcare.org.   

Crannoch was established in 2010 by Maggie Durning, to look after young people who are not able to stay at home with their own families, often as a result of neglect or breakdown in relationships. This has resulted in them often having chaotic lifestyles and making decisions that are not in their best interests.  The house shown above is Crannoch and is located in Lochgelly.  Here we can care for up to 6 young people between the ages of 8 and 19 in an atmosphere of calm, providing routine and predictability which promotes safety and trust. 

Young people who live with us have said that it is like living in a family, which is heartening as that is our aim; To provide the highest standard of care for young people in a homely, nurturing and safe environment where there is "Room to Flourish and Space to Grow".

All the adults who work in Crannoch are committed to building positive relationships.  Helping the young people to develop skills and improve their lives so that they can reach their full potential and overcome the trauma and anxiety they have previously experienced.  

We are inspected annually by the Care Inspectorate and you can access information about Crannoch as well as our latest report by clicking on the image below.


The tree trunk and branches represent the team who provide support and care for the young people, most of whom arrive in a traumatised state with extreme feelings of loss.  The team then implement the principles of GIRFEC, in particular the eight Indicators of Wellbeing which are Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included (SHANARRI) and the eight different coloured leaves represent these indicators (please click on the words "Indicators of Wellbeing" to access the government site). The butterfly represents the young person leaving Crannoch with the knowledge and skills they need to Iive and reach their potential in the big wide world.  The butterfly trail is a reminder of the hills in our previous logo.
