Our Place Our Future, a local initiative to empower communities, has received funding of £30,682 from the European Social Fund, to seek the views of people across Greenock East and Central and encourage their participation in positive changes within their local area.
Our Place Our Future – Greenock East and Central will launch with a community event at Broomhill Community Hub on Monday 29 January, with sessions running from 10am until 8pm. It will engage with people living or working in the area, giving them a chance to have their say on a range of issues and be at the heart of community change.
A new team of seven Community Link Workers (CLW) are getting set to work with patients in Inverclyde, who have social challenges that may affect their health or are already impacting upon their wellbeing. It is a move that is will see a different skill-set introduced directly into medical practices locally, helping to take some pressure off GPs.
