Uist Council of Voluntary Organisations
UCVO PUBLISHES COMMUNITY INFORMATION BOOKLET
Uist Council of Voluntary Organisations, which is a partner in Third Sector Interface Western Isles, is pleased to publish an information document for the community, in particular, individuals who are in isolation as a result of COVID-19.
Download a copy of the booklet here.
While there is now talk of easing ‘lockdown’ restrictions, it seems likely that measures to control the spread of the coronavirus, such as social distancing and, for some, self isolation, will continue to be advised in some form for many more months in 2020.
Uist Council of Voluntary Organisations has compiled a list of local organisations that are offering services, advice and support across the islands from Berneray to Eriskay.
While the details of these organisations are presented in the booklet for information, please note that as the situation continues to develop the status of individual groups and the nature of services on offer could change. Therefore, for the latest status, please contact the relevant organisations through the telephone numbers or email addresses listed.
Uist Council of Voluntary Organisations recognises that not everyone is online or uses social media and that is the primary reason for the production of the booklet, which has been distributed to every house between Berneray and Eriskay and also published within Am Pàipear.
Uist Council of Voluntary Organisations remains operational with staff able to offer advice to charitable organisations and social enterprises, with enquiries welcome on a range of issues, including support to access funding to ensure business continuity for groups affected through COVID-19.
