Engage COVID 19 Update - 24 July
The Scottish Government is keen to develop understanding of how national measures and local effort are supporting those at risk due to Covid-19, to inform consideration of future support options. They are reaching out to local third sector partners to gather information about the kind of groups that they have been supporting and the types of support they have been providing during the crisis, as well as for their views on partnership working during this period and what they think future needs might be.
The online survey is now open until 7 August.

A bit about Scotland’s Bravest and the role
“Scotland's Bravest Manufacturing Company are an emerging Social Enterprise that gives opportunities to veterans and others with disabilities. Our main product is signage - large and small for which we have a large customer base all across Scotland.
Volunteering to drive for us will improve our in being able to deliver our products (predominantly road signs and custom signs) to our customers. It will also help to reduce our overheads (costs of carriers and couriers) considerably.
Drivers will need to be able to climb up onto the rear of the vehicle and may need to assist in loading and unloading small items. Most signage will be loaded by forklift on pallets but smaller loads are common too. Good navigation skills are essential as is good manner with customers and depot managers.”
