A new office in the Highlands for the charity Children's Hospice Association Scotland (Chas) has been officially opened.

The five-room premises in Ardross Street, Inverness, represents an expansion for the Chas at Home team.

They provide a free care service for families who have children with a life-limiting medical condition.

Chas at Home supports 39 families across Scotland - 13 of them are from Inverness and the surrounding area.

Previously the team worked from a single room at the Highland Hospice.

Chas at Home will cost £328,000 to run over the next financial year.
