Com­mu­nity care at home fund

The Oban Times - - News -

THE HIGH­LAND Coun­cil has en­dorsed a new Com­mu­nity Care at Home De­vel­op­ment Fund.

A fund of £10,000 has been made avail­able to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment which has been de­scribed as ‘an in­no­va­tive ap­proach to de­vel­op­ing com­mu­nity based care at home ser­vices.’

The coun­cil, and sub­se­quently the NHS, has ex­pe­ri­enced difficulty in re­cruit­ing peo­ple in the past to pro­vide care at home ser­vices in ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties.

It hopes this new model will help pro­vide home care ser­vices to re­mote ar­eas of the High­lands.
