Aberdeenshire Third Sector Week 2020

#ATSW Day 5: Young People and Older People

A good chat means the world to us all, no matter your age. Befriending provides companionship for many people, the chance to develop a new relationship, and opportunities to participate in social activities that they may not have had the chance to try before. Today we hear from several organisations who support Younger and Older People around Aberdeenshire, connecting lonely and vulnerable people to their communities.

You can also view the final edition of our Grow Your Group presentations: Monitoring and Evaluation.

#ATSW Day 4: Environmental and Preserving Heritage

Direct contact with nature has many benefits and will often improve people's overall mood, mental health, and life satisfaction. We are very fortunate to live in a place that features beautiful coastlines, pretty seaside towns, rugged cliffs and sandy bays. There are hundreds of attractions and hidden gems dotted across the region, Many of which offer therapy to help improve social, health and physical health of their service users.

#ATSW Day 3: Health & Wellbeing and Men's Sheds

Good health is about the mind as well as the body - feeling physically fit, and feeling good about ourselves, means that we can go and achieve more of the things we want to do in life.  Today we hear from various Mental Health and Wellbeing service providers and how they have assisted those in the community, particularly during the pandemic. 

You can also view the third of our five Grow Your Group presentations: Evidencing Need.

#ATSW Day 2: Tackling Poverty & Equalities and Additional Support Needs

Poverty is much more than just low income. Factors that generate poverty are wide-ranging and cover many aspects of day-to-day life such as health, housing, educational attainment, employability, and access to services. Today we hear from Daniels Place and The Haven; two community foodbanks that provide users so much more than just access to food.

You can also view the second of our five Grow Your Group presentations: Getting Things Right for an Application.
