Dingwall Trust began over 70 years ago after David McNair Dingwall bequeathed funds to set up a home for needy children. Today an administration office and six care homes stand on the original site with three additional care homes off-site, but within close proximity to the main facilities.

Dingwall Trust is an approved Child and Family Support Service under Section 396 of the Children, Young Persons and their Families Act 1989.
