From Monday June 29th Am Fasgadh will be starting to re-open Monday to Friday. At this stage members need to phone 01478 613533 before coming down and we'll give you a suitable time. Please don't drop-in or you'll probably be turned away. We're operating outside (although you will be able to use the toilet) but we have a new shelter and a large midge killer, provided with funding from Skye Community Response via Portree and Braes Community Trust. We can't serve meals at this stage but you can pick up takeaways.
Deliveries and phone support will continue to be available to members who are shielding or self-isolating, or who cannot get to Am Fasgadh. Takeaway food for up to 7 days a week is still available. We will continue to visit the south end each week.
We know that isolation has been tough for a lot of people during lockdown and we’re really looking forward to welcoming members back. There are a lot of challenges to providing a service in a way that keeps to the rules and is safe for everyone, and we’d like to thank everyone in advance for being patient and understanding.
We’ve been working hard throughout lockdown to keep in touch with members, support their mental health and offer practical help with food, essential supplies, prescriptions and welfare packages. This has been made possible by funding and assistance from the Scottish Government’s Wellbeing Fund, Foundation Scotland, the Robertson Trust, Highland Council, the Co-op, Tesco and a number of individual donors.
It’s a very friendly place and we’re probably more like a big happy family. Every birthday is celebrated and every member made to feel special
