The Aberdeen Council of Voluntary Organisations (ACVO) share innovative ideas on the theme of health and wellbeing

The Aberdeen Council of Voluntary Organisations (ACVO) has released a collection of short videos on YouTube, where six inspiring social entrepreneurs share their innovative ideas on the theme of health and wellbeing.

Filmed at the sold out Enterprising Third Sector conference in October last year, these TED talk style videos cover a variety of different topics including how to reimagine city spaces to be welcoming to all, how to empower clients through employment and how we can improve public transport for those with a dementia diagnosis.

Filmed and edited by Station House Media Unit (SHMU), the videos showcase the expertise and work of a wide range of local and national organisations.  Absafe, Inspire, SACRO, Business Pastors, Sheddocksley Baptist Church and Go Upstream all provided speakers.

Kaja Czuchnicka, Partnership and Enterprise Officer at ACVO, who organised the event said “We are truly fortunate to have so many wonderful third sector organisations contributing to the health and wellbeing of people of Aberdeen and providing support thousands rely on. Today, we want to share the learning from the conference with the public – so please watch, share, comment!”

The videos are now available on ACVO’s website and YouTube channel.
