Jigsaw Project – Community Health & Wellbeing Centre Last updated on 13th July 2022

Known as the ‘Jigsaw Project’, an idea is born out of need – Dunbeath & District Centre’s vision is an ambitious new build Health & Wellbeing Centre to serve the communities in the South East of Caithness.

The new Health & Wellbeing Centre will enable the existing facilities at 7 Neil Gunn Road to be relocated in their entirety.  The existing premises provide facilities for the local community but is currently limited in the number of people it can accommodate.  The new Centre has been designed with the aim of providing larger and more flexible floor space which can be altered to accommodate different needs at different times during the life-span of this modern building with opportunities for employment and volunteering. The provision of consultation spaces will enable external service providers, such as hairdressers, podiatrists and physiotherapists to bring their services to the community whilst offering a venue for the Near-Me video call service run by NHS Highland.

Dunbeath & District Centre has appointed Oberlanders Architects Ltd, along with the wider project team, to help develop plans to build a bigger and more inclusive Centre to deliver the valuable work which is currently serving the community from the existing premises at 7 Neil Gunn Road.
