A story by Western Isles Community Care Forum
Eolas was set up as a social group for informal carers in the Western Isles, to come together over afternoon tea or morning coffee, in a relaxed setting.
We were able to pay for alternative care to allow all carers access to this group.
A story by The Richmond Fellowship Scotland, East Renfrewshire Dementia Service
Our project enabled carers to have regular breaks at theatre performances where they could socialise, whilst our staff team hosted four separate music and dance events for their loved ones all of whom had a dementia diagnosis.
All events took place within venues in East Renfrewshire.
A story by Quarriers
The project was to create another Dual Breaks Club for carers in another Local Authority area, this being Inverclyde as well as the existing club in Renfrewshire. This has allowed carers the opportunity and peace of mind to take a break either with, or without the person they Care For.
