Whit’s happening April issue 2021!


We hope people are enjoying the 'Whit's Happening' magazines. We are delighted again this issue to have many others who want to offer feature pieces and already interest in pieces for next month! 

This is super as we want to offer space to share what is happening to help improve connections. 

COVID_19 has caused upheavals and distress in so many ways, if we can maintain and build our connections, we may at least not feel as alone with all that is happening, as really, there is often so much more going on than we realise. 

So, if you fancy, relax and have a wee cuppa and a read of this month's edition, we hope you enjoy it and feel free to share.

This month our features include:

  • VHS report launch 'Vaccine Inclusion-Reducing inequalities one vaccine at a time page 5
  • The Drumchapel Mental Health Consumer Enablement Project 30 years on page 6
  • Unpaid Carers toolkit page 20
  • Recognising our rich tapestry, measuring the contribution of third sector organisations to tackling health inequalities page 28

  • Marie Curie in your community page 109

Some of the information included is running landscape instead of portrait, we are sorry about this, however, we didn't want to leave it out and this was the only way we could fit it in. On the contents page, there are instructions how to rotate a page which we hope is useful.

Each month I often share how none of us alone can do it all and that working together we can do more. If you have time, you may find. ''The Drumchapel Mental Health Consumer Enablement Project 30 years'' feature on page 6 interesting. 30 years ago, on 1st April the author of this piece took up post, this wee piece shares some of that story, enjoy, and again, thank you to everyone who made what has been achieved in the past 30 years possible.

Take care of yourselves as you do matter and let's dream and make plans for  building a better future for everyone, as it is amazing what we can achieve when we work together.
