A little update from the Community Health & Wellness Project Officer
I'm now embarking into year three in my post as the Community Health Project Officer here in North Skye. The last year has been very different from how I think everyone imagined it might be and my focus turned to supporting the communities as much as I could through the pandemic. I am pleased that as restrictions ease the work which we were doing pre-lockdown is resuming and you'll read throughout this newsletter about how projects are progressing.
I'd like to take a moment to mention and thank all of the generous and kind people over the past year who have worked so hard to keep each part of this island supported in such a tough time. I was lucky enough to be working with some of the key community resilience representatives and many volunteers in each township around Skye & Lochalsh and their tireless efforts, thoughtfulness, kindness, and hope was truly heart warming in such an uncertain time.
And now, looking to the future, this newsletter and associated social media platforms aspire to bring news and updates from a range of health groups and organisations who are working in North Skye and Raasay.
As we move through the Options Appraisal and the continuation of the implementation of theSir Lewis Ritchie Report Recomendations it isimportant for everyone to know that each area around North Skye & Raasay has some key community members who are there to represent you and your area. If you'd like to find out more about who your representatives are or if you'd like to find out more about any of the projects mentioned in this newsletter then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
