Black Isle Cares, established in 2015, is a charity that provides support services for older adults and vulnerable people across the Black Isle by identifying local needs and barriers and working to address these through the provision of services and effective partnership working.
Our objectives are to increase local provision, aid the delivery of services and empower our local people to live healthier and inclusive lifestyles with dignity, choice and confidence.
