For many people, life is difficult. Faced with various physical, emotional and social challenges, we aren't always equipped to cope on our own.

But at CrossReach we believe that with the right support, at the right time, every person can flourish and every life can be fulfilling.

Simpson House...

Simpson House - often described as friendly, welcoming, safe and encouraging.

At Simpson House we provide counselling for people affected by their own or another’s drug use, recovery support groups, recovery one to one appointments, and work with children and young people affected by parental substance use.

We welcome people of all cultures, all gender identities, sexual orientations, and all religious and ethnic backgrounds to Simpson House.

We strive to provide professional services that are empowering, transforming and innovating.

Simpson House is part of CrossReach, the Social Care arm of the Church of Scotland.
