Are you caring for somebody?

Western Isles Community Care Forum (WICCF) was established in 1992 as a forum for Voluntary Care organisations which represent the interests of carers and users of services throughout the Western Isles.

One of our core functions is to maintain a Register of Informal Carers, so we administer projects which will be of benefit to carers.

Currently our projects include:

  • Carers Trainers Project: supports carers via provision of information and training through a home visit;
  • Eolas: a social group for carers;
  • Fois: free self-catering accommodation;
  • Personal Assistant Directory: online directory to help carers find paid support, paid for privately or via direct payments;
  • Short Breaks: provision of respite grants to carers.
