Creative Care Workshop - Crieff

Monday 1st April 2019, 7pm - 8.30pm

Strathearn Artspace, Crieff


Creative Care, Crieff Area– How can we help?

Come along to this follow up event hosted by the GrowBiz Creative Care Project team, Donna Murray-Trail and Brenda Roddy.

As the demand for social care in rural communities increases, more and more people are considering setting themselves up as self-employed to help increase the range of care and support available to those in need.

Some people may have direct experience of providing care and support, where others may have a particular skill or activity, they think may improve the lives of people in the Crieff area.

Some may want to set up a business full time whilst others may be balancing other jobs too. Perhaps a local "hub" of care and wellbeing practitioners could be created to help understand and manage the need in your community?

GrowBiz is keen to help people to make that step and to understand the barriers and opportunities within the local social care marketplace and also how best to develop your business idea.

Whether you’re an expert or want to move into this field, it would be great to meet you and together explore how a creative care approach can best help you on your journey.

This workshop plans to look at the various options available to those in the Crieff area who are those interested in setting up and being a part of a hub or co-op type arrangement, working together to help deliver care and wellbeing services to the community.

A discussion will take place on the pros and cons of each option and how GrowBiz can support the group going forward.

Please come along if you'd like to get involved and connect with others to discuss how your community might be able to take this forward.

Although the event is free, booking is essential.
