Office space is becoming available to rent at the offices of Macc in Swan Buildings, Swan Street in April 2018 for use by a community and/or charitable organisation. The office is on the 3rd floor and can be accessed via stairs or a lift.

Growing financial and workforce pressures are having an impact on the ability of community service providers to meet the needs of the population and to make a reality of the vision set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View.
