About us

Tagsa Uibhist is a voluntary organisation based in Balivanich on the Isle of Benbecula, an island in the Southern Isles of the Outer Hebrides. Since being founded in December 1999, Tagsa Uibhist have provided support for carers, people living with dementia, and vulnerable people living in their own homes throughout Uist. Throughout our years in operation, the organisation has expanded and now provides a range of services throughout the local community, all of which fit in with the organisation's core objective of meeting the needs of the elderly and vulnerable populations in Uist.


We believe that to provide a professional service, it is paramount to put service users at the heart of everything we do. As such, the people receiving our support have become accustomed to our flexible, user-led services. This has led to Tagsa Uibhist becoming a major provider of care services throughout Uist.


Tagsa Uibhist is a company limited by guarantee, and is managed locally by our members and elected Board of Directors.


Tagsa Uibhist is the only registered charity on the islands that provides free care from trained staff.

Our service is registered and regulated by the Care Inspectorate, and has established effective links with statutory bodies and other voluntary groups on the islands.
