Todhill was established in the early 20th Century by Dr George Carter Cossar as a centre for rehabilitation through farming activity. It later developed into the setting for a residential care service and day support service for people with learning disabilities and mental health support needs. Ownership of Todhill was eventually transferred to The Richmond Fellowship Scotland in 2014. The Fellowship has recently built 21 new homes at Todhills, completed in June 2021. With designs influenced by the semi-rural setting and agricultural heritage of Todhill, the one-bedroom apartments provide contemporary living and practical support environments that include integrated digital systems allowing for the application of a wide range of care technologies. The personalised support on offer at Todhill includes a dedicated member of The Richmond Fellowship Scotland’s specialist Positive Behaviour Support Team. This means that the homes and services are suitable for people with complex support needs.
