After much careful deliberation, it is with great regret that the Trustees have decided to close Braeholm, its family accommodation centre in Helensburgh, no earlier than 30 June 2016.
There was a great deal of recognition and appreciation for all the activities that take place across the country to deliver Aggie’s Mission and for the part that all members of our team play in contributing towards that. This is demonstrated in part in Helensburgh area by the Braeholm Centre but in considering its outputs in more detail, and informed by a recent study, it was concluded that the building itself is not providing sufficient benefit to those that we serve for it to justify the level of investment required to maintain it, both now and in the future. A decision was therefore made that the centre should close.
Aggie’s is now consulting with a number of key stakeholders to determine how we can continue, and increase where appropriate, our support to the Naval community in the Faslane area. Far from pulling out of Helensburgh, Aggie’s is committed to developing its work in the area.
