17 February 2021Stronsay Defib Appeal
This appeal is to raise funds for public access defibrillators to be sited in three locations across Stronsay including Whitehall village and Rothiesholm. The funds will be used to cover purchase, maintenance and installation costs as well as providing AED/defib and first aid courses for interested resident.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.
To help someone who is in cardiac arrest effectively, a defibrillator needs to be found as quickly as possible. For every minute it takes for the defibrillator to reach someone and deliver a shock, their chance of survival decreases by 10%
Our community is grateful that one of our own community members was able to access this life saving treatment successfully and we want to ensure that we can offer the best chance to all here on Stronsay for the future.

Dementia Friendly Stronsay
The Stronsay Development Trust is pleased to announce the start of a new 18-month project designed to enable our island community to become an Alzheimer Scotland recognized Dementia Friendly Community. In Scotland, over 90,000 people are living with dementia and that number is expected to rise as the population continues to age. Our goal by becoming a recognized Dementia Friendly Community is to allow community members diagnosed with dementia to live as independently as possible, continuing to enjoy their favorite activities with a sense of empowerment and support, knowing their voice is heard and valued. We also hope by obtaining this recognition to welcome and support visitors living with dementia, their families and carers.
Our project will focus on two key areas: community education and the development and management of a dementia aid lending library.
The project will be overseen by a steering group and managed by a new part-time Project Coordinator. There will also be a variety of volunteer opportunities.
This work is supported with funding from the Life Changes Trust. The Trust is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. The Life Changes Trust was established by The National Lottery Community Fund in April 2013 with an endowment of £50 million to support transformational improvement in the quality of life, well-being, empowerment and inclusion of two key groups in Scotland: people affected by dementia and care experienced young people.
