Celebrating Community Solutions – 18 June 2021

The Community Solutions annual conference was a little different this year.  Over 90 participants signed up to the online conference which was designed to showcase some, not all, of the activities funded through the Community Solutions programme. 

After introductions from Maddy Halliday, CEO of VANL and Ross McGuffie, Chief Officer of Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire, there was an introduction to Community Solutions and overall activity over the year to March 2021.
