What we do

Our vision is for our communities in the Highlands to recognise and embrace the challenges a life presents to older people, enabling them to live life to its full potential by providing a fill circle of support.


Each month we host a range of varied and enjoyable community events at the Helmsdale Village Hub. We also hold one-off community activities and events throughout the year, including an annual Open Day and Dog Show.
