Our CLD department took part in an information session today held by Volunteer Centre Dundee. The session was to celebrate, recognise and reward the achievements of young people volunteering through the Saltire Awards.
Our Community Learning and Development team were privileged to be part of a lecture titled ‘Creating Wellbeing – What is needed to transform Scottish society so that all citizens are able to thrive?’, delivered by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP.
The First Minister highlighted the integration of health and social care services as the biggest healthcare reform since the creation of the NHS and the potential for these integrated services to adapt to individual needs and create truly person-centred care. Our STEP project is funded by the integration, and the lecture emphasised the importance of third sector and charity organisations for tackling poverty and health inequalities.
