Local Health & Support
Biggar Community Action Group
Biggar Community Action Group began in March 2020 and was set up to respond to the Coronavirus crisis in our community. Members of Biggar Community Council, WomanKind Clydesdale, Biggar Church, Biggar Medical Practice, local businesses and other organisations came together initially to quickly find a way to provide assistance to isolated and vulnerable people in our community. From this initial meeting, Biggar Community Action Group was formed and our services have developed accordingly.
