Our aim is simple; to support children, young people, their families, and the team around them so that children with profound disabilities attain and maintain the highest level of holistic wellbeing possible.

The Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments (SCCMI) is a Scottish charity based at the Craighalbert Centre near Cumbernauld and provides services for families throughout Scotland. The Centre includes an independent school for children and young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and is one of the Scottish Government’s seven Grant Aided Special Schools. We employ approximately 50 staff in the Centre and have an annual budget in the region of £2 million.
