Scotland's route map - what you can and cannot do
As we all follow the route map for Scotland’s phased approach through and out of the COVID-19 crisis, we recognise that many of you are keeping a close eye on the developing guidance for the reopening of premises.
You may also be looking at how, when the time is right, you would implement any ‘restart’ of activities correctly – particularly around the safety of volunteers, staff and clients.
Clear, up to date, guidance can be found at the links below:

We are providing a “returning to work” training session on Thursday 13 August at 10am, delivered by our colleagues at GCVS, which will look to answer questions and alleviate concerns around ‘restart’ issues. Places are limited to 20 delegates, please register on Eventbrite

This training will cover all aspects of managing risks, flexible working patterns, complying with social distancing, ensuring staff return to work and meeting the needs of the business. By the end of the session you will:

  • Understand the law
  • Understand the four phases of easing lockdown
  • Understand how to risk assess before returning to work
  • Understand how to end furlough
  • Understand how to manage annual leave
  • Understand how to manage flexible working

We hope you can make it. Remember you must register here to attend the session delivered by Natasha Gordon (EAS Manager – GCVS) on Thursday 13 August at 10am via Zoom.

The 97m Debate - 11 August 2020
The debate would like to give local Creatives in Renfrewshire a voice as there seems to be no information on how Scotland’s £97m will be distributed to local Cultural Organisations and how will individual freelancers be supported. The aim is to gather the thoughts and questions of the Creative Renfrewshire members and lobby Fiona Hyslop MSP , Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Fair Work and Culture to seek clarity on these important questions.

It is important that the voices and experiences of people from across the country influence thinking around how we support good mental health and wellbeing as we move through and out from the lockdown. Sharing learning from their online conversation cafés, Scottish Recovery Network have launched a set of resources (report, podcast and animation) which tap into the knowledge, skills and lived experience of people from different communities; particularly those living with mental health challenges.
