Our target in the coming years is to make Dementia Friendly Communities financially self-sustainable and less reliant upon one-off grants to carry out our work. We will soon be launching Creative Communities, an online shop selling products made in the Highlands by local artists, people with dementia and groups, including those who attend the Helmsdale Well-being Hub. Inspired by the creativity of local people in the Highlands, we hope that the funds raised through Creative Communities will support their efforts and also provide some valuable funding to enable us to continue our work.
A separate website dedicated to Creative Communities will be available soon. To hear when the site goes live, just contact us to be added to the mailing list.
If you are based in the Scottish Highlands, have artistic flair and want to sell your work through Creative Communities while helping to support our work, please do contact us.
