In­vi­ta­tion to work­shop

Rutherglen Reformer - - Out & About - Dou­glas Dickie

Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing asked to con­sider vol­un­teer­ing for the South La­nark­shire Health and So­cial Care Part­ner­ship (SLHSCP).

A work­shop will be held in Ruther­glen Town Hall on Tues­day, June 6 be­tween 9.30am and 3.30pm for any­one who might be in­ter­ested.

The part­ner­ship com­bines the ex­per­tise of a host of agen­cies in­clud­ing NHS La­nark­shire, South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, the vol­un­tary and in­de­pen­dent sec­tor as well as un­paid car­ers.

The work­shop, which is one of four across the re­gion, will be run by Cor­mac Rus­sell, a world-lead­ing thinker on com­mu­nity-driven change.

Val de Souza, di­rec­tor of health and so­cial care of SLHSCP, is lead­ing on a pro­gramme of build­ing and celebrating com­mu­ni­ties.

She said:“The spirit of part­ner­ship work­ing has been long es­tab­lished in South La­nark­shire and there’s an abun­dance of good work al­ready un­der­way in our com­mu­ni­ties.”

The event will have three aims: to iden­tify what com­mu­ni­ties can and are do­ing best on their own, to iden­tify where com­mu­ni­ties re­quire help and to iden­tify what com­mu­ni­ties need SLHSCP and part­ner agen­cies to do for them.

At­ten­dance is free and places will be al­lo­cated on a first come first serve ba­sis. To book a place con­tact Gi­u­liana Gustinelli on 01698 453700 or email gi­u­liana.gustinelli@south­la­nark­shire.
