Evaluation of our Community Engagement Activity

Highland Hospice works in partnership with community-based organisations to deliver befriending and care at home services in remote Highland communities. SKS Scotland CIC were commissioned to undertake an evaluation of this partnership working. The work was conducted between July and October 2023 and the final report can be downloaded here.

Further to this, we hosted a 'Community Partnership Conference' in November 2023. Many community organisations from across the Highlands came together, and the findings are reported here.

We work across the Highlands in various different ways promoting quality end-of-life care in both a clinical and social setting – from hospital to home.

This work includes – but is not limited to:

We support our community partners as we would an individual - by listening to your wishes and tailoring a service that is practical, professional and sustainable, for you to deliver with our support.
