QUEENSFERRY CHURCHESí CARE IN THE COMMUNITY
Scottish Charity SC021833

Our Mission
Queensferry Churches' Care in the Community was established in 1993 as a registered charity dedicated to providing quality  support services to older people and carers within the communities of rural north-west Edinburgh.*

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of those we support, and to enable them to maintain an active independent lifestyle.

What we do

Our current services include:-

Daycare:

For older people with dementia or who are otherwise confined to their homes due to stroke , illness or other long term conditions.

Befriending:

Trained volunteers will visit older people who are living alone to offer companionship, a friendly ear and
the chance to connect with the wider community.

Home Support:

Our Home Support service closed to new referrals in January 2011.

Carer Support Service:

Provides support, information and learning opportunities to all carers in rural north-west Edinburgh.*

Information resource for carers and older people within the communities we support

Support the Local Senior Forum:

To enable older people within the communities we support to have a say in local, regional and national policies which may affect their lives.

The organisation receives regular funding from:

Department of Health and Social Care -City of Edinburgh Council
Lothian Health / Lothian Primary Health Care Trust
Services for Communities-City of Edinburgh Council
              
As the above funding does not cover all of QCCC 's running costs we have a comprehensive fundraising programme each year  within the communities we serve. This is a vital part of our work without which we could not operate our current level of service. We are also very well supported by donations from various local organisations and individuals.

 *North-West Rural Edinburgh for the purposes of our services, covers the communities of South Queensferry, Dalmeny, Kirkliston, Newbridge, Ratho Station and Village.
