Good Employment Charter

With the endorsement of the Glasgow City Region Anchor Network, a Good Employment Charter for the Region is in development, led by the Glasgow City Region Programme Management Office.

Like many other regional geographies across the UK, we want our Charter to include a range of approaches that promote and support fair and healthy work practices across the Region. We would like it to help employers to create workplaces that embrace the characteristics of good employment in ways that ensure fair pay, opportunity and progression to all.

To do this well, we need your help. Please complete our short survey to give us your views and shape the development of the Charter. A broad set of responses from across sectors, from varying scales of organisation, and from different places within the Region will help us to shape the Charter for everyone’s benefit. Therefore, please also share the survey with your contacts in private, public and third sector businesses/organisations within GCR. The survey closes on FRIDAY 19 JANUARY 2024.

18 January 2024

Renfrewshire’s annual memorial service to those who have lost their lives to suicide will take place on Thursday 18 January at the memorial tree outside Renfrewshire House.
The Memory Tree event gives bereaved family and friends a chance to come together to remember lost loved ones and celebrate their lives. It also aims to raise awareness of mental health issues and offer a supportive space for anyone who is struggling.
As part of the event, there will be the opportunity to place a purple heart on to the tree with a message to a loved one that’s been lost.
There will be a space inside Renfrewshire House Customer Contact Centre to write messages from 3.30pm, with the event starting outside at 4.15pm.
Tea and coffee will be available in Paisley Abbey after the service, along with the chance to sit and talk with others.
Anyone who has been affected by suicide in any way is welcome to attend.
