Green Impact Auditors for the Highland Council

Posted by Sonya Peres

Green Impact

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation programme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate organisations and educational institutions in embedding sustainability in all areas of their work. Interested staff and students volunteer to participate in the programme and receive a toolkit outlining actions they can take to progress sustainable practice.

Depending on the number of environmental actions teams carry out, they can achieve either: a working towards accreditation, Bronze, Silver or Gold award. All teams participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in!

Auditing

We are looking for volunteer auditors support the teams and schools in the Highland Council area in reflecting and taking stock of their first year on the programme. Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to do in order to audit through a half-day of training. In pairs auditors will then complete one or more audit. An audit should take around an hour to complete depending on the size of the team.

What skills do I need?

No technical knowledge is needed! Full training will be provided. All you need is an interest in environmental issues and sustainability.

Please get in touch if you’re eager to get involved with Green Impact in an auditing capacity, or if you have any further questions.

What’s the next stage?

  1. Ensure you are free all day (10:00am – 5pm) on December 1st.
  2. Fill in the online form using this link. Spaces are limited, so apply soon!
  3. You will be contacted by Sonya Peres if you have been successful in your application.

If you have any questions about taking part, please email Sonya Peres at sonya.peres@sos-uk.org

Social Media Marketing and / or Web Design and or accountancy

Posted by David

We have 2 directors: myself (I am registered blind and have a guide dog called Darcy) as well as Dyslexia and my partner Karren has severe Dyslexia.

We have recently launch our own not for profit social enterprise that aims to support employers to recruit and retain the skills of the 1 million disabled people looking for work. We work with employers to bust the many myths around employing disabled people and promote the many benefits. We also run free workshops for disabled people on the 'facts of life' within the recruitment process.

We know our strengths and that is supporting disabled people using our own lived experience and our professional expertise having carried out similar roles within the public service. We are both very good at it.

COVID has been particularly hard, the nature of our work is face to face by default and as such after launching in February 2020 our opportunities drained very quickly as it did with many businesses. This has meant that finances have been VERY limited and we have not as yet made any profit even though we have invested over £6,000 of our own money to keep the business afloat.

We also know our weaknesses:
Accountancy: With both of us having dyslexia and my visual impairment, numbers are a particular challenge. We do basic book keeping but need support with tax returns etc.

Social medial marketing: SEO, blogging and online presence are also very challenging and we are not making any effective use of the services that are available to us due to the many 'accessibility' barriers we face.

Web design: I have had a crack at it, www.breasonable.co.uk, and as you can see it's pretty poor.

We just need to get the basics right so that we can start to run our social enterprise to the benefit of the disabled community.

Evaluating the impact of Family Compass’s mental health services on children & families

Posted by Sonya Peres

We want to evaluate the impact that our services (including drama and play therapy, resilience-building group and family programmes, counselling and other creative support) have on the wellbeing of children and families. Do we contribute to a short/medium/long term improvement in mental health? Are there particular individuals who benefit more from our support, and if so what are their needs?
