The Lilias Graham Trust is a Scottish charity that offers independent parenting capacity assessments, within a residential facility.
Located in rural Stirlingshire, the LGT provides residential placements to parents and families in cases where there are concerns about parents not meeting the needs of their child/children and the Local Authority require more evidence-based information about whether the child can remain safe within the family.
The protection of vulnerable children is the focus. With experienced staff on call 24 hours a day, The LGT provides and assesses parenting skills and helps parents and families to explore and develop positive relationships.
