Supporting Leuchie's long term future

The Leuchie Forever Fund exists to raise major donations that will help secure the long term future of Leuchie House, and to steward major donors in their relationship with Leuchie.

Why this is vital

The social isolation, economic hardship, physical and emotional strains of caring for a loved one with a neurological condition such as MS are relentless and hard to imagine. Yet research shows that one in five carers in Scotland have not had a day’s break from care in the last five years.

Leuchie provides that break, in a special way. Whilst most breaks are provided in vacant beds in a nursing home, Leuchie House is unique in Scotland. We invite guests to take their break in a relaxed, country house setting in which our care, nursing and physiotherapy teams enable those with complex needs to have a proper holiday. We work with guests at their pace to help them enjoy all that's included in their break. At the same time, we prevent conditions from worsening, improving quality of life and health for the guest and their carer.

As people are living longer and with ever more complex care needs, Leuchie is striving to continue to offer the very best integrated care in Scotland.

There is nowhere else that achieves what Leuchie achieves because it is both complex and costly. We urgently need to raise funds to help us to maintain the standards which our guests and their carers deserve.

We are ambitious to meet the growing demand placed by an increasing number of guests with ever more diverse and complex conditions and to continue to reach people in all parts of Scotland.

We need to continually invest in staff and equipment and our building to meet these needs and to inspire others. This evolution of our service can only take place if we receive the support of generous donors who recognise that Leuchie offers something unique and necessary today, whilst undergoing the necessary transition to be fit for purpose for a future in which any one of us could develop a neurological condition and live longer with ever more complex needs.
