Black Isle Cares was established in 2015 to support some of the more vulnerable members of our local community, 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 out local people to live healthier and inclusive lifestyles with dignity, choice and confidence.
In 2022, Black Isle Cares worked with Age Scotland and Avoch Primary School to on the "Stories from the Black Isle" project, in which children and older people in the community got to know each other through letters and interviews, with a focus on finding intergenerational connections, tackling loneliness and recording stories.
Using the interview footage and wonderful artwork created by the Avoch pupils, a film was created to showcase some of these stories:
Feel free to join our "Friends of Black Isle Cares" mailing list. Registering as a friend means we can keep in touch with you about events and activities, invite you to our AGM, volunteer coffee mornings and tabletop sales, let you know about intergenerational activities and to share our news. Membership is free and has no minimum commitment in terms of time.
Volunteering is a hugely rewarding experience and if you have some time to spare, then we would love to hear from you. From delivering meals to fundraising, playing board games, gardening and befriending, we have plenty of opportunities for you to lend a hand.
If you would like to support the work that we do in our local community, please consider donating via our JustGiving page. All donations are greatly appreciated.
