Comas - A Gaelic word which means ability 

We are not a charity that is easy to define 

Comas is a social innovation charity using community development to help people find the solutions they need.

We develop communities between disconnected and isolated people

 We support people who have enduring health, mental health, and social problems, older people, families and people recovering from addictions

We aim to make people's lives better in every way we can

We tailor our support to the situation and the people, working with them to find the right solutions 


The bottom line is, we change lives 

We make people happier, more resilient, more confident and less lonely 

We empower people to choose the direction of their lives 

We make people more secure financially and ensure they have a home they feel comfortable in 

We encourage people to achieve their potential, through higher aspirations and learning opportunities 

We make people healthier, with support for recovery, self-management and access to support 

We help people to make connections, help each other and feel a sense of belonging

Comas Zombie Chase 2015 

What Comas Zombie Chase!

Pilrig Park was a dangerous area to be around on the of Halloween!  Our horde of Zombies scared and surprised everyone who came along and infected lots of them.

We would like to give a big thank you to everyone who was involved, without you that night would have not happened!
