It will be provided by an integrated team from Stirling Council Social
services and the Health Board based in the health centre in Callander.
Therapists will be working more closely with Doctors allowing a better
service to people in this rural area.
This service has just started and is reorganising staff so that as many
people as possible are based locally.
K.A.T. The trust is setting up a temporary thrift shop in the Church
Hall as a trial.
The trust looked into a late application to buy the land for

the trust to make an application to buy the land under the
community right to buy plan, resulting in it being too late.
