Consultation Responses and Policy
Response to the Independent Review of Adult Social Care 2020
(to the Scottish Government on behalf of Edinburgh’s Third Sector)
Community Led Support in Edinburgh – 23/07/2019
Mind the Craic
This initiative was delivered in partnership with Volunteer Edinburgh and the Third Sector Strategy Group and researched what really works in the field of prevention and early intervention for Edinburgh’s citizens. From August to early December 2018, Virginia Bjertnes (who carried out the project) met with people from various communities around Edinburgh. Partner organisations invited her to join groups, meet individuals and hear the voices of a wide diversity of people. Interviewees ranged from 7 to 98 years old from and came from different localities across the City. They were people with and without disabilities, from various ethnic backgrounds, religious beliefs, sexual orientations and nationalities. Mind the Craic relays the experience of participants and volunteers of 66 different groups and projects.
