Parklands Care Homes is marking its 30th anniversary with a significant funding boost for local community groups.
The Parklands Pathway Fund, unveiled as part of the celebrations, aims to give back to the areas Parklands has served.
Around £30,000 is expected to be made available to community groups and charities causes every year.
The Parklands Pathway Fund builds on the company’s long-standing support for local communities by establishing a targeted fund dedicated to supporting projects that leave a lasting, positive legacy.
The fund will focus on projects that promote sport and well-being, support for older people, community sustainability and environment, education and young people.
Ron Taylor, managing director of Grantown-based Parklands Care Homes, said: “Over the past 30 years, Parklands has been an integral part of the communities it serves, providing high-quality care for older people, investing in people and skills and supporting local community groups.
“As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, we're delighted to introduce the Parklands Pathway Fund— a dedicated fund that will focus on specific projects that align with our core values and areas of interest.
“Whether it's supporting initiatives that support older people, promoting community sustainability and protecting our environment, or fostering educational opportunities for children and young people, we are committed to leaving a positive legacy in our communities by supporting projects that make a meaningful impact."
The Parklands Pathway Fund is open to community groups and charities based in the Highlands and Moray, specifically in areas where Parklands has, or has had, a presence.
These include Grantown, Ullapool, Tain, Muir of Ord, Fortrose, Inverness, Aberlour, Keith, Buckie, Cullen and their surrounding areas.
