Community Care Assynt Ltd (CCA) is a charity based in Lochinver, Assynt (Scotland) which has developed out of the work of a local community effort, the Community Care Assynt Action Group.
CCA took over the running of the Assynt Centre in Lochinver in early September 2010 after the Highland Council closed the facility in August. The first 5 years of operations have seen our organisation and the Centre develop rapidly – see our 5-Year-Report here.
The Assynt Centre is currently open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and provides a variety of services including Lunch, activities and transport to and from the centre. We also work closely with other local services, such as health practitioners, to ensure our service-users get all the care, advice and help they need.
