Youth Scotland
Corporate Services Manager
We are looking for someone who can lead our corporate services team, work well with others and think strategically as part of the Senior Leadership Team. Youth Scotland supports over 2,000 youth groups across the country, which provide youth work opportunities for over 97,000 young people. 

Active Communities
Board Members
We are looking to recruit new board trustees who share our values and are passionate about accessible health and well-being opportunities for the local community. In particular, we are looking for people with skills in the following areas: Public Health, Social Enterprise/Business Development, Community Learning and Development, Facilities Management, Climate Action and Net Zero. As well as looking for people with lived experiences of social and economic factors affecting local communities.

Board Members
SCVO is a trusted organisation, with a critical role to play in supporting the voluntary sector. As a member of the Board, you can be part of something special. Trustees make sure the governance of the organisation is maintained to a high standard. The role is both rewarding and challenging, as we operate in an ever-changing environment with precarious funding – just like most other voluntary organisations.

Community Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund

The Renfrewshire Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund is now open for applications. Engage Renfrewshire will once again be administering this fund on behalf of Scottish Government and any interested groups are invited to submit an application before 5pm 24 November 2023.
The Fund has a strong focus on prevention and early intervention and aims to support grass roots community groups in tackling mental health inequalities and address priority issues of social isolation and loneliness, suicide prevention and tackling poverty and inequality. There will be a continued emphasis in Year 3 on responding to the cost of living crisis and on those facing socio-economic disadvantage.
Community groups and charitable organisations with an annual income of less than £1 million are invited to apply. The fund has been significantly over-subscribed in previous rounds. The decision panel work to ensure a broad reach across communities and we therefore recommend groups apply in the region of £10,000. We anticipate that a small proportion of bids up to the maximum value of £30,000 may be supported. Unconstituted groups may apply for up to £2,000.
Full guidance can be found on our website: https://engagerenfrewshire.org/engage-support/community-mental-health-wellbeing-fund.html


Renfrewshire Council - Meet the Buyers

Join us for the next in our series of 'Meet the Buyer' events and learn about doing business with the public sector.

Local government, the health service, universities and colleges ... public sector organisations in Scotland spend up to £13bn every year.

We want to help Renfrewshire businesses like yours to bid for and win contracts and work.

At Renfrewshire Council, we're committed to increasing our spend with local suppliers and building an inclusive, green and resilient economy. We're also committed to bringing together representatives from the wider public sector procurement community - such as the NHS and UWS - to share our objectives and tell you about about our forward plans and contract opportunities.

Join us at Tweedie Hall. Linwood and hear from senior buyers at Renfrewshire Council, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, and University of West of Scotland.

Generations Working Together - Two Generations Homeshare

Wednesday 25th October 2023, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
online via zoom (a link will be sent two days before)
We are excited to announce this thematic Intergenerational Housing Places and Spaces session with Two Generations Homeshare. You can expect to find out more about Homeshare and their planned work in Scotland.

A New Way For Older Living - Discover How Homeshare Helps Intergenerational Living Happen
For many adult children in Scotland, it’s a familiar feeling to be worrying about your parents as they age. This is particularly the case where they may not be quite as independent as they once were, perhaps a little unsteady on their feet, or their memory is starting to decline. They may have lost confidence – perhaps even more so during Covid lockdowns – and wish they had someone in the house overnight or to support them back into the community, while they are not at the point where they need to look at expensive residential, full time or in-house care options.

We look forward to seeing you all there and the session will take place with a short presentation followed by a Q & A session.
