Who We Are

Mearns & Coastal Healthy Living Network is a charity established in 2002 to support the wellbeing of older people.

Based in Laurencekirk, but covering the whole of Kincardine & Mearns, our organisation is run by a small team of staff and a Board of directors, and with the help of dedicated volunteers.

What We Do

We provide a range of services, groups and activities to support the wellbeing of older people (age 50+) throughout Kincardine & Mearns. We in turn are supported by many volunteers who help us run these.

The services include help with transport to medical appointments, accompanied or home delivery shopping service, and garden maintenance.

Our groups and activities include community gardening, a lunch club, low level health walks, digital skills classes, gentle exercise classes, a forum for older people, and a social group for people with mild cognitive impairment.

We hold regular dementia-friendly drop-in cafés in Laurencekirk and Stonehaven, for people with dementia and their families, friends and carers, as well as the wider community.

Our volunteers, many of whom themselves are 50+,  get the chance to use their skills, knowledge and good will to support others in their local communities.
