The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon MSP, visited the new Ardseileach Centre in Stornoway, during her recent visit to Lewis. Ardseileach provides residential accommodation to disabled adults, through a series of independent living units clustered around a core residential facility.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “The Scottish Government is committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities. People with all disabilities should be allowed the opportunity to live as independently as possible. Facilities like the Ardseileach Centre provide a vital service in rural locations like Lewis as they enable adults with disabilities to live independently in their community. It was a pleasure to visit the Centre and see how residents are benefitting from the service.”
