It was the second year in a row for the Inverness coffee morning, at the end of 2019. The event, which attracted around 25 people, is a great opportunity for people we support, their families, friends and support practitioners, to spend time together and blether in a stress-free environment.

The event saw its successful debut in 2018, bringing people together in the local Inverness area. But following unanimously positive feedback from those who attended, Carr Gomm staff organised buses for people from Sutherland and Seaboard to join in on the social occasion in 2019.

Everyone had an absolutely amazing time – they just loved it.

Not only were there tea, coffee and cakes, but also a raffle with great prizes, a piano accordion playing music and a few games of bingo.

The event also provided a valuable opportunity to gather feedback from people on their experience with Carr Gomm. People stuck their thoughts up on a large feedback board; and we were delighted by the sea of positive comments.

Due to the ongoing popularity of the event, and the feedback received, we are now looking to hold regular events in more Highland localities. In fact, one has already been organised for the Seaboard region, to take place in February!
