Linburn Centre

Linburn Centre exterior and gardensLocated in Wilkieston, West Lothian, the Linburn Centre accommodates up to 35 members who can attend Monday to Friday for a range of activities, rehabilitation, independent living skills and social outings.

The Linburn Centre opened in June 2011 and our initial focus has been on establishing a needs-led service and exploring the wide variety of members’ interests to ensure there is a programme that meets everyone’s needs.

The centre incorporates a wide range of facilities to equip members with the skills and opportunities they require to maintain and improve the quality of their life. It is a hub of activity and socialisation for members within the local area, and is also ideal for occasional short-term use for members from further afield.
