This month I was grateful to be able to work from the Volunteer Edinburgh office (for anyone interested – they have hot desks available) and find out more about the services and support they provide.
Some of you will know that I regularly attend these meetings. Following are documents from the meeting this month: Minutes 7.2.19 GP Link Workers (list of practices) IJB Papers (Transformation and change 5.4) Three Conversations Good Governance review Successful EIJB grant applicants (Item 5.2, page 7) Stephanie-Anne Harris Strategic Development Manager

Over the last five years, the LOOPs partners and teams have been working closely with City of Edinburgh Council and, more recently, Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership to deliver the Local Opportunities for Older People initiative across the city. It is with sadness that we are now in the position to inform you that this work will be coming to an end in March. The collaborative has included team members and volunteers from: Cyrenians Eric Liddell Centre EVOC
I’ve been in my role for 18 months now, can you believe! And although both Stephanie-Anne and I always work with the health inequality agenda always forefront in our mind, I have to admit that its been a while since my studies covering SIMD, epidemiology and public health. So last week I had the opportunity to attend a CHEX workshop (ran by Elspeth Gracey) which I was really grateful for.
