New carer support group for Mallaig area

Want to read more?

At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

A new support group for carers is starting Mallaig.

The Connecting Carers group will have its first meeting on Tuesday April 25 in the Astley Hall, Arisaig, from 11am.

There are more than 3,000 unpaid carers in Highland, some as young as five, who look after relatives, friends or neighbours who couldn’t manage without them.

All unpaid carers are invited to go along and meet up with other carers in the area to chat over a cup of tea and cake and share their experiences while having a well-deserved break from their responsibilities.

For more information email or telephone Mary Hemsworth on 01463 723561.
