CVS Inverclyde and Inverclyde Community Development Trust (commonly known as The Trust) are delighted to announce the forming of a single service to support Inverclyde's community groups and volunteers.
A discussion around priorities for Inverclyde sparked off the debate at the annual third sector conference, Our Place Our Future, which took place at the Beacon Arts Centre earlier this month.
The annual event, organised by CVS Inverclyde, focused on findings from the recent Inverclyde-wide community engagement survey, Our Place Our Future. This gathered the opinions of local residents across a wide range of themes to help inform the Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP), which is the strategy of priorities for Inverclyde over the coming years.
Key priorities covered included poverty, reducing inequalities, repopulation and environment.

This year's conference has another packed programme and takes the name of the recent Inverclyde-wide community engagement project, Our Place Our Future, which was managed by CVS Inverclyde with its Inverclyde Alliance partners and support from the Big Lottery Fund Awards for All Scotland. It gathered the opinions of local residents across a wide range of themes to help inform the Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP).
NUTRITION TOPS AGENDA FOR CVS INVERCLYDE
... 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.
