Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is delighted to be a key partner in the newly launched Glasgow City Food Plan (GCFP). The 10-year plan is collaborative, holistic and establishes meaningful work to make the food system in Glasgow more sustainable, equitable and healthy.

Last month, from 7 - 13 June 2021, we celebrated national Carers Week to highlight the importance of unpaid carers by ‘Making Caring Visible and Valued’. To mark Carers Week, Glasgow Local Carers Centres organised a calendar of events for all unpaid carers to attend, from cream teas to fancy hat garden parties.
Could you open your home and your heart to help us support Care Experienced Young People? Could you work with them to give them the skills to flourish and to look forward to a future living independently?
Young people who are leaving care can feel scared or anxious about living alone and need someone who can provide support, guidance and reassurance. Our Glasgow Supported Carer Service are looking to recruit Supported Carers across the city who can help these young people learn the practical skills required for adult life.
Please see below a personal video message from Gordon Bryan, Head of Care Services, Glasgow City HSCP, in which he gives an update on how staff within his teams have been continuing to support service users during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and thanks staff for all their incredible efforts.
