Blackwood Homes and Care are very happy to announce we've been rewarded funding from The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland!
The funding will go towards hiring a Volunteer Co-ordinator based in our Belses Gardens Care Home in Cardonald, Glasgow. This means we can harness the power of volunteers, creating more activities and support for our tenants and customers! We're looking to greater digital inclusion, putting on social events and combatting social isolation, helping our customers with day to day aspects with their lives and even helping with gardening!
This will be a trial position and if successful we will look out to further developing the role and making it permanent.
