Clackmannanshire TSI (CTSI), CVS Falkirk and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE) are currently in the process of organising our second Forth Valley Third Sector Conference, which will take place on Wednesday 13th February 2019 at Alva Academy in Alva, Clackmannanshire. As the conference is specifically for the third sector, we feel it is important to have your input on the workshops we offer at the event, and have created a short online survey with a range of suggested workshop topics.
Our Older People’s Day event is over for another year, and what an incredible whirlwind of a day it was! Attendees at the event were able to meet with almost 50 stallholders and activities from local and national organisations, making it our biggest Older People’s Day event yet.
The Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) are looking to hear from people about their experience of Universal Credit, as part of their ongoing effort to make improvements to social security in Scotland.
We can now confirm that every attendee at our Older People’s Day event on Tuesday 2nd October will receive a FREE Taggle-Me anti-theft strap. The Taggle-Me strap prevents thieves from lifting phones, keys, purses and wallets from bags and pockets unnoticed. There will also be a stall selling Taggle-Me straps for anyone who would like extra. With just over ONE WEEK to go, we can also confirm the following new stallholders for the event, which takes place 10am – 3pm at Falkirk Town Hall: Falkirk Public Partnership Forum and the Pharmacy First scheme, the Royal Voluntary Service’s (RVS) Older People’s Project, Conduit Scotland, Falkirk Council Hubs, and Denny and Bonnybridge Men’s Shed
With just over 2 WEEKS to go till Older People’s Day 2018 on Tuesday 2nd October, we can confirm even more new stallholders for the event, taking place 10am – 3pm at Falkirk Town Hall., including U3A Falkirk, Forth Valley Independent Living Association, and Move It or Lose It’s Falkirk group.
With just under 4 weeks to go until Older People’s Day on Tuesday 2nd October, we can now reveal our stallholder list for the day! British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters will also be available at the event 12pm – 2pm.
As part of our Older People’s Day activities, we want to hear about the older people from the Falkirk area who have stood up for and championed human rights across the years. We want to display the stories of your families and the incredible things they did for other people when they were in their 50s and over at our Older People’s Day event in October.
With the deadline on 9am Monday 13th August, this is your FINAL CHANCE to take part in the 2018 Third Sector Impact Measurement Survey. Open to all third sector organisations – including charities, social enterprises, community and voluntary groups – operating in the Falkirk Council area, this is your organisation’s chance to let key strategic partners the impact you have on our sector in Falkirk, and in our communities.
There are now less than 2 WEEKS left till the Third Sector Impact Measurement Survey closes on 9am Monday 13th August.
This week, we were pleased to be able to present Forth Valley Sensory Centre with their Volunteer Friendly Award.
