BBC Radio Scotland: Make a Difference

Section: People and NetworksType: News Item Date Published: 14th April 2020

BBC Radio Scotland are among those all over Scotland pulling together to help their communities get through the COVID-19 crisis.

BBC Radio Scotland’s Make a Difference campaign is here to provide a platform to those organisations and groups looking to help their communities. It is available to amplify key messages and let listeners know what they can do to help and who to contact if they need support.

Get in touch:

  • If you can offer valuable information, services and support and want to spread the word to reach more people, or perhaps a vulnerable group
  • If you are trying to meet an important need and would benefit from putting a call out for resources (not money) or volunteers
  • If you’ve got a great example of how to cope with one of the many challenges we are facing and would like to share your expertise with people at home who could benefit.

To get involved email makeadifference.scotland@bbc.co.uk or for more information head to BBC Radio Scotland (this link will take you away from our website).

Carer Voices project lead, Tommy Whitelaw, was previously featured when calling out to individuals and families to share art and poetry with people to spread kindness and smiles. Visit the Carer Voices webpage for more information on how they are supporting communities during this time, and how you can get involved.
