Ceartas are excited to announce that, in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund, we will be running an innovative new project to help people in East Dunbartonshire connect with local services and their community.
Our service user led approach has been running since our very first De Café was held over 15 years ago. Our group work tackles social isolation by providing meaningful activity, enhancing; confidence, positive mental health, the platform to meet others, and connecting people with the right information and services.
The CCC project will allow us to take this to the next level through greater coordination with a focus on developing current activities, new activities, our networks and volunteer involvement.
Officially kicking off later this year, the CCC project will run for two years.
“We are thrilled with this award from The National Lottery Community Fund. Not only is it a recognition of great work we have achieved but it also demonstrates the confidence The National Lottery Community Fund has in the approaches we have taken and wish to enhance in the future to give people a voice. We look forward to working in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund to ensure that more people connect with us, have opportunities to create positive changes in their lives and in the communities in which they live in East Dunbartonshire. So a huge thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund.”
