Compassionate Inverclyde.

This is an initiative which has been set up to help ordinary people within the community. It does not involve any health professionals, and relies on volunteers from throughout the area. Their main aim is improving the well-being of people through delivering compassion and acts of kindness to others.  One of the projects is Back Home Boxes which donates boxes to people who live alone when leaving hospital.  The box contains bread, milk, biscuits, jam and a knitted blanket. The boxes are sponsored by Amazon, and the contents through donations and fund raising.  Feedback from this project is extremely positive and is definitely making a difference. For more information speak with Alison McMenemie Tel - 07538838145

Another aspect of the project is No One Dies Alone. (NODA). 49 volunteer companions were recruited and received training, to provide a service where they will sit with people in the final hours of life. This project has provided support to many people who have passed away. If you would like to find out more about Compassionate Inverclyde, or would consider becoming a volunteer, please contact

Notices – any items for the monthly notices sheet should be in the hands of the secretary no later than the last Wednesday in the month. This is the best way to either highlight forthcoming events or to take the opportunity to report back on things which have taken place.  With oral intimations taking up more and more time on a Sunday morning, please try to think ahead and get details to the Secretary for including in the notices sheet instead.
