A map that highlights services offered by Inverclyde's voluntary sector organisations and community groups, as well as others supporting the local community during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been created by CVS Inverclyde to provide a clear, quick reference point for those seeking information on local providers.
Vicki and son Declan go extra mile to support CVSI team
With new guidance from the Scottish Government stating that there may be benefits to wearing face coverings in public, CVS Inverclyde's Partnership Facilitator, Vicki Cloney, set about acquiring a supply for the local team who have been out and about serving the local community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Undaunted by the fact that supplies were unavailable until July, Vicki turned to her sewing machine with hands-on help from eight-year-old son Declan. They set about creating a batch of colourful, washable masks for the CVS Inverclyde team of Shielders, including the Community Link Workers.
