Aspiring Communities – People, Places and Peers Project was launched in January 2018, for 18 months. The purpose of the project is to help engage community bodies & third sector organisations in deprived and fragile communities to develop and deliver long term local solutions.
18 month Scottish Government funded project
Aspiring Communities – People, Places and Peers Project
This project aims to look at new ways of working with people who use or have used services. The members of the advisory group will co-produce and deliver user led peer support for people who will mutually benefit. This will bridge identified gaps and utilise existing resources to complement and enhance services and supports available.
This will build on work to date:
Overall the main outcomes we seek to achieve is that we have active volunteers. These volunteers will deliver user led peer support, reduce isolation, enhance resilience and improve health and financial inclusion, whilst supporting people in their communities.
To date we have developed a Women's Drop in. This group meets every Wednesday from 1pm - 3pm at St Francis of Assisi Church hall, Auchenbothie Road, Port Glasgow, PA14 6JD. This group is for all ages. The timetable for the next couple of months is:
- 23rd May - Safety Talk, Police Scotland
- 30th May - WeVolution/Faith in Through Care
- 6th June - British Red Cross First Aid Training
- 13th June - Community Care Opticians
- 20th June - IDEAS Project
- 27th June - Clydeside Singers
July there will be no activity due to people going on holidays etc but we will still be meeting for a cuppa.
