Trust fund

The Trust Fund for the Disabled was set up in 1981 to commemorate the International Year for Disabled Persons.

The fund has provided grants for household equipment, disabled access, holidays for disabled people and assisted with the provision of transport facilities for local elderly and disabled people.

The funds are raised through the Thrift Shop sales and collection containers in most of the commercial premises throughout Uist and thanks to the generosity of the community we are still in a position to offer assistance to some of the most vulnerable people in these islands.
