About Vibe

Together we’ll find your voice.

Vibe is our wellbeing service supporting young people aged 12-18 in a neurodivergent friendly environment.

About Vibe

Vibe is a wellbeing service based in our Linlithgow campus for neurodivergent young people aged 12-18 who are unable to attend a traditional mainstream school.

Providing a holistic programme of wellbeing and skills development, Vibe aims to build confidence and resilience, and through our person-centred approach, achieve agreed ambitions, and where appropriate reengage with learning.

Our Learning and Wellbeing Practitioners support young people to achieve their ambitions using a wellbeing framework and a programme of learning and skills development activities developed to meet individual needs.


Vibe wellbeing environment

As a wellbeing service, Vibe’s key focus is to reduce anxiety and build resilience to improve self-esteem. Through a variety of activities, techniques and programmes, Vibe aims to help young people develop new skills and relationships while developing knowledge that will enhance life opportunities.

Co-developed with neurodivergent young people, and supported by our specialists experienced in this area, the specifically designed Vibe environment is a critical factor in creating a warm, low arousal, and friendly space for neurodivergent young people to thrive and achieve their personal goals.

Young people have use of a range of rooms and also have access to the campus Bistro during lunch time. Other campus facilities including the grounds, gym hall, swimming pool and outdoor all-weather pitch are also available to Vibe.


Vibe provides a variety of activities designed to match to the interests and skills of young people which include:

  • arts and crafts
  • music and drama
  • yoga and relaxation
  • sports
  • cooking and baking
  • life skills
  • gaming
  • creative writing
  • numeracy
  • literacy

Activity content is continuously evaluated to ensure it is relevant and new activities is added when required.
