Creative Care Project
Our Creative Care project is an innovative entrepreneurial initiative with huge potential to meet the increasing demand for self-directed support and change the way social care is delivered in rural areas.
We work with people needing care, their families and representatives, and our members, to provide friendly, local and individualised services.
Through the LEADER project, GrowBiz has been able to identify and work alongside local health and social care networks in Kinross, Crieff, Comrie, Dunkeld and Birnam.
It provides a support group for professional self-employed service providers in the care and well-being sector in Perthshire who offer a wide range of services – everyone from occupational therapists to qualified walk leaders and herbalists.
The project has grown from the model pioneered by the Highland Perthshire-based Care and Wellbeing Cooperative (find out more here), which GrowBiz helped to develop and support with funding from the Scottish Government’s SDS Innovation Fund.
