As well as our excellent therapies, we also provide a number of services. We believe in inclusion and that social contact is also an aid to improving health, especially as ill-health can often lead to isolation. The following services are also available at The Oxygen Works.
In 1998 the Highland Cross donated our first minibus to the Centre, its replacement was then donated by the Great Wilderness Challenge. Our current mini bus was once again donated by the Highland Cross after recognition that facilitating a means for members to gain access to the Centre when they had no other means of travel was one of our core objectives.
Our bus operates Monday to Friday, travelling to Invergordon, Evanton, Allness, Nairn, Forres, Maryburgh and of course Inverness city centre.
The mini bus service helps between 50-60 members to gain access to the Centre where they have no other means of getting to us.
If you would like to come along to the Centre but cannot make your own way, please call us to discuss the potential to catch our bus.
LUNCH AND SOCIAL CLUB SERVICE
Social isolation can be detrimental to wellbeing, and can negatively impact on recovery from injury and illness. At the Centre we actively encourage our members to enjoy our daily lunch club where they can have a home-cooked lunch with other members and staff. We are happy for members to bring along family and friends to join us for lunch which we serve Monday to Friday.
Throughout the year we host a number of social functions. These help build relationships, encourage family and friends of members to come along to the Centre and raise essential funds for the running of the Centre.
Our annual Curry & Quiz night is always well attended with authentic home-cooked Indian food and a challenging quiz to test your teams’ general knowledge. We are keen to build upon our social events calendar so if you have any suggestions please let one of our team know.
