Whit’s happening! Issue 5


WOW, we are so humbled by the great feedback from the Whit's Happening! We are led by the voices of experience and we heard people thought it was great but would be better if it were more Glasgow wide.

Issue 5 is our first attempt at a city-wide Whit's Happening. We know, it won't have captured everything that is going on, which is why we plan to keep updating every 3 weeks, so if you see any errors or omissions please email us we do listen and try and help where we can.

There is a lot in there to be familiar with so it is worth taking the time to sit down with a cuppa and read through it, so if you, or someone you know, is maybe looking for some services or supports, you have a better idea of what is out there to help and offer support.

People do make Glasgow and right now, when we need each other more than ever, its amazing to see how many people are reaching out to offer help and support. 

These are strange times, there is uncertainty about the future, but when we choose to be leaders in the living room, helping ourselves, our families, our communities, our city find a way through this, then even if at times we are socially distant, we know we are not alone!
