Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership
Blackwood Homes and Care was founded in 1972 by Dr Margaret Blackwood MBE, a campaigner for the rights and independence of disabled people.
Dr Blackwood was awarded her MBE for her dedication to improving the lives of disabled people and bringing awareness to a lack of adapted homes. She was deeply committed to people being able to live independent lives and, following her work to improve their financial situation, set her sights on providing housing that was suitably designed for disabled people.
We deliver our vision of helping people live their life to the full in the pioneering spirit of Dr Blackwood by providing high quality housing, care and support for disabled people of all ages, with over 1500 homes across all 29 mainland local authorities in Scotland.
Our new investment in innovation aims to develop a modern standard for accessible homes, combining technology, modern construction, and engagement with people who live with a disability to design and produce beautiful, easy to use homes. We pride ourselves on our knowledge and passion for delivering complex care with our frontline teams using the award-winning CleverCogs™ system to support people in their own homes.
Our expertise as a specialist housing and care provider, and our values driven approach, ensures that our quality and value for our customers is extremely high and that Blackwood is a great place to work.
