Scam Share Update - 11 March
RAMH gut health/mood and food resources:
Glasgow City Parent Group have produced flipbooks and PDF documents to support parents with their knowledge, understanding and skills around different digital learning apps e.g. Teams. These documents are helpful for parents with few literacy barriers and with some digital skills. They are less helpful where there are literacy barriers - lots of words on a page etc.

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) have launched an invitation for organisations to get involved in helping them iterate the next stages of Discover Digital. Third sector organisations are invited to apply by 22 March for one of five small grants (up to £1,750) to carry out engagement around what kind of information and resources are needed to enable wider awareness, understanding and adoption of digital wellbeing, health and care tools.
Home Heating Fund
If you live in Renfrewshire and you're struggling with your energy bills you may be able to get help through the Scottish Government Home Heating Support Scheme. You can email Advice Works on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau on 0141 889 2121 to find out whether you qualify for this scheme as both these organisations can make referrals.
Some key points about the fund:
- HHSF can provide funding for people who are self-rationing heating to allow them to afford to adequately heat their home.
- HHSF can also be used to clear supplier debt.
- This fund is not for people in immediate crisis, such as those who have been disconnected.
- It is currently expected to only be available until 31 March.
