Inverness Welfare Centre

Our Inverness Welfare Centre offers an approachable, direct, confidential service that involves one-to-one conversations to explore your situation, identify the issues and obtain the help you need.

The team will guide you through the support process, providing direct assistance where they can, and, with your agreement, involve other organisations and charities that might be better able to meet your particular needs.

Covid-19 Update

Due to current public health restrictions, our Welfare Centres are currently closed. However the teams are working remotely to provide continued support to those in need.
