ALLIANCE response to the National Care Service Current Operating Model (KPMG) – Alliance Scotland
Last week, the Scottish Government shared documentation produced by KPMG on the Current Operating Model (COM) of social care in Scotland (which is available here). The ALLIANCE was asked to provide feedback on the document received last week and respond to its key questions. Our response is available here. Given the short turnaround time, we were not able to put this response out for full consultation with members. We have raised this issue with colleagues in Scottish Government, and hope that future documentation will be shared with sufficient time for full input from our members and people with lived experience.


Mental Health Awareness Week is coming up from 09 to 15 May

This year’s theme is Loneliness and the Mental Health Foundation are inviting people to share their experiences of mental health using the #IveBeenThere. The aim of this campaign is to both tackle stigma attached to mental health issues and highlight the fact that, though it can seem like a very lonely and private issue, all of us can go through changes in our mental health at different points throughout our lives. 

Throughout next week we’ll be sharing information on services and activities in Renfrewshire that support good mental health. Many will be connected to our Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund and you can see these on the fund’s dedicated Instagram @renmhwb
