Whit’s happening and resource directory Issue 7


 For now, we continue to update the whit's happening and resource directory as there is still a lot going on. We regret we can only share it electronically the cost for publication due to the size of the magazine and frequency we produce it would be too high and we want to offer it FREE. 

So please if you want to share the link on your Facebook page or website feel free. Too often we hear people don't know what is going on and while this wee directory may not have all the answers, it may offer some.

While we try to make this as accurate as possible things change e.g. Glasgow Helps as lockdown and shielding restrictions are lifted, they are changing their response as of 31st July the helpline will move online. Anyone needing assistance can email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or text 07451289255, if people have no phone credit then please text, someone will call back

While we cannot change issue 7, if you see any errors or omissions please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will amend in issue 8

Each issue has changes so it's always worth if you want, to make a wee cuppa and set time aside to have a wee look………..

We remain in strange and uncertain times, but if we look out for each other, are kind to each other, maybe we can help ease some of the natural anxiety these times bring and help more people have an improved sense of wellbeing and hope for the future and a better new normal and not feel alone?

''We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens, is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.''
