Engage Daily Update - 07 June
A message from Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre for Carers’ Week:
June is a special month for the Carers Centre as we celebrate and focus on our carers during Carers Week. This year we are coming together to Make Caring Visible and Valued and to thank carers for the contribution they make to families and communities throughout Renfrewshire.
The continuing restrictions mean that all our carers week activities have to remain online but we hope that you will still join us to celebrate and Make Caring Visible and Valued. On Monday 7 June Renfrewshire Provost Lorraine Cameron will launch the start of Carers Week with a welcome video on our social media channels. Throughout Carers Week we will share videos and stories from carers and staff so stay tuned into our social media.

Corra Foundation launches The Local Support Fund – Micro Grants
This fund is focused on small community-based groups which deliver frontline services to support people who use or used drugs, people in recovery and families affected by someone else’s drug use. This vital support is often delivered with very limited funding which means that small groups can be stretched to their limits. In some cases, the pandemic will have put more of a strain on finances, making it even harder to provide support for people and families when they most need it. This fund is designed to help these groups by providing grants which will offer some financial security for planning and delivering support to improve the wellbeing of both people who use drugs and their families.
To know more about this fund please go to:- https://www.corra.scot/grants/drugs-services-funds/
