Housing support and care at home services: Saorsa House offers care for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs

Saorsa House is located at 81 Colinton Mains Road, Edinburgh.


  • Converted semi-detached 4 bedroom accommodation, part wheelchair accessible.
  • All bedrooms are en-suite with wet floors.

Saorsa House opened in December 2016 and it is a new facility providing 24 hour residential night and day support for up to 4 adults with Learning Disabilities including adults with Prader-Willi syndrome. There is only one other unit in Scotland specialising in supporting people with Prader-Willi. We are very proud to be at the forefront of care and support for this rare disorder.

All floors will have level access and there will be ramps leading to the front and rear doors. All bedrooms are en-suite and on the ground floor and we will be using the above flat for offices.


Saorsa House is situated in a great area for those wanting to take advantage of local services and amenities as well as those we offer in-house. We also have an outhouse for the service users which is detached from the main house. This is a space where the service users can go and relax and they also keep their pet in there too!


There is a library, pub and hairdresser nearby, together with supermarkets and excellent public transport links with Edinburgh city centre.

We specialise in catering for clients with a broad spectrum of needs and differing dependency levels and are perfectly equipped to deal with even the most complex of health needs.


Our aim is to provide peace of mind to our residents and their families by ensuring that our team is on hand to cater for all requirements 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Every team member is fully trained to offer the professional service that you would expect. We pride ourselves on building relationships with all our residents based upon trust, understanding and mutual respect.


If you are affected by Prader-Willi syndrome, please visit the website of International Prader-Willi Syndrome organisation (IPWSO) for more information.
