Leith Volunteer Fair #2 in October

After the success of the first Volunteer Fair in June, where organisations such as Leither’s Don’t Litter, the YMCA and our Community Council took part in, Leith Community Education Centre are hosting a second one on Thursday 10th October 2019 from 4pm to 7pm.

The volunteer fair is an excellent way to get involved the local community and learn what people and organisations are up to across greater Leith.

Call for members of the public to join new data panel

(Adapted from a post on the Scottish Community Councillors Development Network KnowledgeHub group)

Are you interested in how data can be used to improve lives, services and public policy? Or how Scotland can make the most of the data we already have and discover new and exciting things about society?

Administrative Data Research Scotland exists to ensure that data about life in Scotland (generated through the day-to-day work of public services such as the NHS, government departments and local authorities) is used effectively and responsibly, for the good of everyone.

They are looking for 8 – 12 people to join their panel and share views on the issues and ethics around the future of administrative data, research using it, and how evidence can inform public policy. It’s an important opportunity to shape the future of this work in Scotland.

Find out more and apply (before the 9 August 2019 deadline) at https://forms.gle/ZVxqmztwei8pvnt8A.

 

Kiltwalk looking for Leith volunteers

The Edinburgh Kiltwalk is on the 16th of September 2018.

The Kiltwalk is a unique charity that enables walkers to raise money for any Scottish charity of their choice. By staging events that bring together thousands of walkers who fundraise for their chosen charity or cause, they support those in need of a helping hand After two successful Kiltwalks in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee which has hosted over 15,000 walkers, the Kiltwalk are excited to come to Edinburgh for the final event of 2018!

The Kiltwalk would love to involve the local communities they pass through on the walk. Part of the route goes through Leith and a pit stop is located in Victoria Park!

Kilties are needed to give their support at the event, keep walkers spirits up and create the most enjoyable day possible. All of the work you do, the time you give and effort you put in to makes the events what they are and is always recognised by staff and walkers alike.
