Strathcarron Hospice Community Development Team have secured funding from the Falkirk Health and Social Care Partnership for an exciting new project which aims to provide support from within communities to people living with deteriorating health conditions.

People with long term conditions and their carers face a number of challenges as their health declines. This new project aims to support people in a variety of ways to enable them to continue to live as well as they can and to make plans for the future if they so desire.

We are currently recruiting volunteers who will be trained and supported to provide practical and emotional help to people in their own communities. The help provided will take a variety of forms depending on the wishes of the person being supported.

If you are interested in providing support to someone in your local community in Denny, Dunipace, Banknock, Bonnybridge, Larbert , Stenhousemuir areas please come along and find out more at an information event at Denny Library on Wednesday 18th October from 2 - 3.30pm.

If you cannot attend this event, or if you are interested in befriending and live outwith these areas, please contact the Community Development Team on 01324 826222 or by email.
