Christmas time cover
Volunteers have been deployed in support of Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks who have been working hard after large areas lost electrical supplies during the storm.
Volunteers have carried out welfare checks on people on the Priority Services Register and delivered food, hot water and winter kits.
Over the last few weeks we have been delivering training to companies in Skye and Lochalsh.
Delivery of these certificated courses allows organisations to meet their statutory requirements in regard to workplace first aid and provides our team with income to support team development, equipment provision, training and to meet the ongoing costs of running the team.
Thanks to the organisations involved for choosing us as your provider and to our training team who’s hard work is appreciated by the wider team.
