Agape Wellbeing Sponsors and Supporters
Agape Wellbeing would like to acknowledge the support and sponsorship of the following external organisations. Their contribution to our centre, our work and to the facilities we provide to our community are invaluable.
VASLan South Lanarkshire
Just a big thank you from myself on behalf Agape Wellbeing, our trustees, volunteers and service users to VASLan for the awarding of the grant we received this week. This award will help us to continue to focus in the area of volunteer development that not only will benefit, upskill and enhance our pool of volunteers, but also continue to meet the needs of our service users. Throughout this process we continue to apply our ethos of a person centred led approach in our service delivery that we believe benefits our local community.
We work alongside Remploy offering work placements to their participants. We have found that this not only gives those who have been on placement with us experience, but also benefits to Agape as the skills of those we have had on placement so far have been just what we needed.
we provide grants to help improve the lives of individuals and communities experiencing disadvantage all across Scotland and in countries around the world.
Calderglen High School
We would like to thank the staff and students of Calderglen High School for their enthusiastic volunteering and support over the academic year. Their contribution is invaluable to work. All students who volunteer with us have access to Saltire Awards, which allows them to gain recognition for the work they do with us.
Agape Wellbeing offers access to Saltire Awards for any volunteer between the ages of 12-25years, they can progress through the various stages to gain awards and recognition for the volunteer hours they put in. This is great for C.V.s to show their commitment and work ethic.
Skills Exchange Scotland
The work we have done with Skills Scotland has helped us improve the lives of vulnerable young adults who are low in confidence and perhaps anxious. Working with these people using a person-centred approach helps us turn these people’s lives around.
We also provide work placements for those on Skills Exchange courses to provide them with experience and support in the areas of our shop, stockroom and Wellbeing Centre.
Christians Against Poverty
CAP are able to issue our clothing vouchers to those they are working with in East Kilbride. This helps us to ensure our vouchers are helping those who need it most. We also work together to provide budgeting courses to those who attend our services.
National Lottery Community Fund
“When people are in the lead, communities thrive.”
People understand what’s needed in their communities better than anyone. We listen, collaborate and fund so that good things happen.
That’s why we’re proud to award money raised by National Lottery players across the UK.
Scottish Association for Mental Health
“Standing up for Scotland’s Mental Health”
Working alongside SAMH they have run workshops in our Wellbeing Centre based on their Let’s Talk programme covering subjects such as anxiety & stress. We look forward being able to provide more workshops in the future.
By working together with the Health Improvement Team we receive input on subjects such as oral health and nutrition. This ensure that those attending our services receive up to date information that allows them to make choices in their lives about their own health and wellbeing.
South Lanarkshire Renewable Energy Fund
We have been able to purchase IT Equipment, which will be loaned out to those in our community who do not currently have online access. This will help them to stay connected to family and friends during the difficult times of Covid-19.
