A free drop-in event to raise awareness on community support available to Nairn residents will be back next week.

The next Here for Nairn event, put in place to help the local community in Nairn understand what community-led support is available to them, is set to take place on Thursday, July 28 in the High Life Highland Library, High Street, Nairn from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Here for Nairn is a series of community pop-up hubs which aim to highlight all the ways in which the community can provide support. The first event was held at the end of June and was a hit with those in attendance.

Pamela Roberts, Nairn Enablement and Care at Home manager from NHS Highland, said: “We’re pleased with how the first event went and we’re looking forward to continue to hold these on a monthly basis, with different community support groups in attendance.

“We are keen to ensure that people are aware of what support is out there and how they can access this from the various community groups that exist locally, within Highland and nationally, that will allow people to explore a wide range of options and services available in the community.”

Representatives from NHS Highland and third sector organisations will be in attendance on the day to help the local community in Nairn understand what community led support is available to them.

These are drop-in events which will allow people to come along at a time and chat to those in attendance. It will highlight all the different ranges of support available, not only from organisations such as the NHS or Council, but also voluntary groups who can also provide support and advice to their local community.
