  • Have your say on improving local/national services after lockdown

    Created: 25/03/2021, Updated: 06/04/2021

    Many third and public sector bodies are asking for views to help find ways for them to improve their services after the upcoming easing of lockdown restrictions:

    -Community learning and development (CLD) Standards Council Scotland is undertaking reviews of two suites of National Occupational Standards (NOS): Learning and Development; and Career Development. Both of these areas are of interest to CLD practitioners and CLD Standards is keen to gather as many views as possible during the consultation process - closing date 19 April 2021.

    -The River Leven Connectivity Project wants to hear your views on how it can connect the Levenmouth communities to each other and the local environment through a safe and attractive active travel network that is accessible to all - closing date 25 April 2021.

    -Fife Council wants to hear your views on the availability of early learning and childcare (ELC) for Fife's families. It wants to know about what ELC services you may currently use and what are your preferred ELC options for future planning of service delivery - closing date 26 April 2021.

    -Community Justice Scotland (CJS) has launched a new survey, examining Restorative Justice Awareness. CJS and The Children’s and Young People’s Centre for Justice has created an animation clip on behalf of the Scottish Government and would like to hear what you think about it - closing date 30 April 2021.

    -The Equality and Human Rights Commission is running an inquiry into racial inequality in health and social care workplaces. This inquiry will look at the experiences and treatment of ethnic minority workers in lower-paid roles in the health and social care sectors and seek to document wider work issues highlighted by the pandemic - ongoing closing date.

    -Do you have a spare 10 minutes to share your thoughts on what it’s been like getting and attending appointments at your GP practice during the pandemic? A team from the University of St Andrews, NHS Fife, Fife Council, and Fife Voluntary Action want to hear your views to help them develop clear messages to support future attendance - ongoing closing date.

    - We're encouraging Fifers to share with us their experiences of living through the COVID-19 pandemic, through 'Your story, Your community' - a Fife Partnership project led by FVA.

    Your stories, suggestions and insight will help us and partners to better work together to make Fife a better place for everybody. The SenseMaker tool we're using makes it easier than ever for us to capture and analyse your experiences.
