Health and Social Care Forum

At the heart of the local planning

Set up by CTSI, the Forum is a key way of engaging with the Third Sector in Clackmannanshire to ensure that both the Third Sector Interface responds to members’ needs and fosters an environment where people can confidently express themselves to decision-makers and feel their voice is being represented through the Health and Social Care community representatives and at the Community Partnership Planning Partnership (Clackmannanshire Alliance).

It puts organisations and the people they work with at the heart of the local planning process and acts as a sounding-board to ensure that CTSI fully understands the community and its interests.

The forum is a great place to share information, learning and network and is open to groups and individuals with an interest in health and social care in its widest sense. It meets quarterly.

The Forum is now jointly held with Stirling in order to promote more rounded discussions about shared issues.

The next meeting of the Forum will be held on December 12, 2017 in Alloa.

Testimonials

  • If people want to learn something new, we enable that to happen by giving them the training and skills – and along the way they get good company and a sense of achievement from what they have made
    Archie Scott Committee member, Wee County Crafters
  • I get a lot of satisfaction as an RSVP volunteer and I would recommend getting involved. Volunteering Matters to me because of the impact it can have on our community and making a difference to peoples lives. It gives me the opportunity to keep active and to contribute to my community in retirement.
    Bob Kerr Handyperson, Volunteering Matters
  • Deciding to befriend was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I have ever made - we both get so much out of it. I look forward to spending time with her every week and we are always commenting on how much we have in common! Loneliness is something that can affect anyone at any time, and it is projects like this that are so important in helping to stop it. I would recommend befriending to anyone – even if they are feeling apprehensive like I was – as the benefits to the person you are matched with and yourself are endless
    Katie Wardlaw Befriender, Volunteering Matters
  • It has been a good transition from working full time to volunteering. I had not done anything like this since my children were young as I worked full time for a long time but now I feel I can give something back to the community – and I am really enjoying this role. It is a great fit
