It's been a difficult 14 months for everyone, there have been fewer opportunities to do the things we enjoy and so some people have become more isolated which we know impacts on mental and physical health. There's been fewer opportunities to do the things we enjoy and for some people the cost of the pandemic has been financial - some have lots their jobs, have seen their wages drop or just experienced higher food and fuel bills because we've all been at home much more than usual.
We've made £30,000 available through our Reconnect Fund 2021 to help local people and group find ways to help the Gorbals community reconnect after Covid to combat some of the isolation and loneliness we know people have experienced, whilst improving their mental and physical health and well-being and their access to things that might help them recover financially.
