What's new?

12th Jun 2019

Hey! We just wanted to give our supporters and survivors an update on what is happening within Wellbeing Scotland.

Although our website has been quiet, we have not been. There has been a lot of changes made and unfortunately we have been running a little tight on the ground to keep everyone posted. Let me catch you up now.

We are now based in Bank street, Alloa. This move was prompted by a few factors and ultimately, the re-location has worked out great. We have established key contacts within the local community and have been receiving support in abundance from Clackmannanshire Council, which we could not be more grateful for. We continue to grow our organisation and have expanded to offer services from Larbert, Stirling and Glasgow on top of our Alloa office.

Our team has changed a considerable amount with the appointment of new recruits across the charity. There has also been a change in the team structure to allow us to deliver a more efficient service. We now have a fresh faced admin team who have been competently handling enquiries on our behalf as well as being the 'cogs' behind the smooth operation of our data handling systems. Our admin team are being motivated and developed by our more recently appointed Senior Administrator, Louise.

We continue to make every effort to raise funds to allow us to continue the services we already offer as well as continue to develop and implement new services to offer survivors the best support we can. To lead our fundraising effort, Wellbeing Scotland have recruited a new Fundraising Manager...Daniel -me. I will share plenty of details on what I am doing specifically over the coming weeks and hopefully I will meet many (if not, all) of you reading this in the future. However, this particular post is about the bigger picture.

Sadly, we no longer have our deputy CEO, Traci, on our journey with us. Although, we are positive that we will cross paths with her many, many times in the future. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

I want to personally thank all of the Volunteers, Donors and Survivors for their continued support. Without you, we would not be here. We have a bright future ahead for all of us and we need to work together to keep moving in that direction. There are events coming up very soon that could be fun for most and I hope to see you there and hopefully raising money. More details will be made available soon, so keep an eye out. Thanks for reading.

 

Daniel
