Day support projects

Caring in Craigmillar have many ongoing projects with which we seek to cater for the most disadvantaged members of the community.

Providing far more than a bite to eat and a day out, our trained staff will collect you and drop you off at your home, and offer practical help and advice. Day care is available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

With discreet facilities for personal needs, here at Caring in Craigmillar we aim to provide a highly inclusive service in which everyone is made to feel welcome, comfortable and safe.

Day to day support: a summary

We offer everyone tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival at the centre, then we provide a programme of activities such as arts and crafts, bingo and dominoes. After a two course meal these activities continue, then users are returned to their homes by minibus at 3.30pm.

Different community projects including Men's Group and Wednesday Club occur throughout the week. Get in touch to enquire about current community projects.

Outings and holidays

Our care staff recognise the importance of integrating with the local community as much as possible. That's why we arrange frequent outings by mini-bus, often to places of interest and for shopping trips. This enables service users to buy clothes, household items and presents for their loved ones. We often take outings to the coast, so that members can enjoy the views of the sea.

2-3 times a year, we take small groups of people on holiday. Popular destinations include Fort William, Ardgour, Glenfinnan and Oban. Service users enjoy a change of scenery and the opportunity to see a place of historical interest. The wildlife in Ardgour is incredible, and on previous trips we have seen stags, deer and many other creatures.
