Community Awards 2016 - 4IT'S REACH FOR THE STARS
... as the spirit of Inverclyde's third sector community is celebrated

Winners from 2015 joined this year's category sponsors and TV presenter Jean Johansson to launch Reach for the Stars - the Inverclyde Community Awards 2016.

Scottish Child Abuse Enquiry

The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry - previously known as the Historical Child Abuse Inquiry - was established on 1 October 2015. The Inquiry’s Terms of Reference cover that period which is within living memory of any person who suffered abuse as a child whilst in care. The abuse must have taken place not beyond 17 December 2014. Further information regarding the Inquiry, including updates on its progress, can be found on its website: www.childabuseinquiry.scot.

The Inquiry will, in due course, seek to recover records, which relate to matters within its Terms of Reference. 


The CVS Inverclyde team have picked up their Healthy Working Lives (HWL) bronze accreditation at an awards ceremony in the Lighthouse, Glasgow.

HWL, an NHS Health Scotland initiative, works with all kinds of businesses free of charge, offering practical information and advice to help employers create a safer, healthier and more motivated workforce.

Following the HWL principle that a healthier workforce really does make for a healthier business, the CVS Inverclyde team are already working towards gaining silver accreditation this year. To help meet the criteria, they are covering a wide variety of topics ranging from nutrition, smoking, alcohol and drug awareness, to stroke awareness training.

... as team aim for healthier working lives

Major changes introduced all in one go is never a good thing for building healthier lifestyles, according to Ross Davey, owner and head coach at Greenock-based CrossFit Caber.

It was part of his seminar on nutrition with the team at CVS Inverclyde, who are now working towards silver accreditation with Health Working Lives (HWL), an initiative that helps employers create a safer, healthier and more motivated workforce.
