JanWho are Boleskine Community Care?
Boleskine Community Care is a charity (SCIO) established and run by volunteer trustees.
Under the constitution a maximum of 10 trustees, elected annually from the membership, conduct the affairs of the group. The membership or 'Friends' of BCC are drawn from the residents of Stratherrick & Foyers.
The board of Trustees coordinate the various sub groups dealing with the Friends volunteer projects e.g. Community Transport scheme, Handyman scheme, Broth and a Blether etc. Funding for these various projects is accessed by the Trustees.
Alongside the volunteer work the charity has also established a professionally run Care at Home service in partnership with Highland Home Carers.
