Our new Centre at 7 York Street, Ayr was formally opened by Provost Helen Moonie on 6th February 2013.  Alex Anderson, our chairperson welcomed all our guests (over 70) to our Open Day and Formal Launch of the new Centre.  He was very pleased with the turnout and particularly happy to welcome some current and former Service Users.

Helen welcomed the opportunity to come and open the Centre and stated that the Centre was held in high regard in South Ayrshire and beyond.  She wished the Centre, Staff and Committee best wishes for the future and was sure we would continue to provide high quality services to the people of South Ayrshire.

John Mulholland our CEO thanked Helen for her kind words and went onto highlight the importance of our services which always places Service Users at the Centre of our services.  John thanked the Staff and Committee for all the hard work which was necessary due to the move.

We are now saying farewell to the old Centre in Holmston Road which served the Centre well over the past 25 years and now look forward to continuing to develop our services in York Street.
