HCCF and Connecting Carers are very proud to have been awarded the PQASSO Quality Kite Mark at Level 2, by the Charities Evaluation Services, which demonstrates the high standard of work we are doing. Level 2 indicates a strategic approach to achieving our aims and objectives, and shows a systematic approach to planning and monitoring results, with a greater focus on outcomes.

Connecting Carers aims to:
- improve support, services and recognition for anyone caring for someone in the Highlands
- support carers to be key partners in the planning and delivery of health and social care
- empower carers to manage their caring role and have a life outside caring (through Carers Support Plans)
- keep carers informed through the Network Bulletin and a range of other channels
If you would like to talk to us about your caring role, please contact us by telephone, email, or visit us.
