A new hi-tech day centre aimed at transforming the lives of adults with severe mental and physical disabilities is opening in Aberdeen.

The £4.3m facility - designed to be the most advanced in Scotland - will provide support and activities for dozens of people.

It will house staff from NHS Grampian and Aberdeen City Council, and features state-of-the-art computer facilities.

It also has sensory features, and users will help develop a sensory garden.

The facility is replacing the Rosehill Day Centre.
