Community-led assets at centre of Coronavirus response

16 June, 2020

Local, community organisations have been at the forefront of the coronavirus response in Scotland. At the Community Ownership Support Service, we are not surprised that many of the groups we work with to take on assets have been so well placed to provide effective support in their communities during this time. Who better to support those who need it than these organisations who know the people and the places they are rooted in so well? Fantastic examples of this are Kinning Park Complex's 'Acts of Organised Kindness' project, Inverclyde Shed's community garden and Cowie Rural Action Group's food delivery and community support services. 

Follow the link below to hear more about the fantastic work these organisations are doing. Maybe they will inspire you, or maybe you are already doing similar work, in which case we would love to hear from you.
