Mother and Bairns Boxes 08 Aug 2018

The funding will be used to give 250 women throughout Ayrshire a mother and bairns box. The box includes the following: a nightdress, breast pads, maternity pads, shower gel, shampoo, deodorant, toilet bag, slippers, toothpaste, toothbrush, pants and lip balm for the mother. The bairn's box will have items that are not included in the Government box; cardigan, nappies, wipes, baby bath, shampoo moisturiser, baby oil cotton wool, hair brush, sponge and muslin squares. These vulnerable women who received a mother and baby box would normally have been socially excluded as they did not have the funds to purchase the necessary toiletries required for going into hospital. The difference the Mothers and Bairns box made to the mother was huge. Gone are the worries about how she is going to manage to purchase the items, thus relieving mental anxiety and stress. The health visitors and midwives tell us that the pregnant women lie about having forgotten their toilet bag, when clearly there was no toilet bag in the first place. As well as relieving mental anxiety the Mother and Bairns box also relieved social anxiety. The mother has the same essential items as other mothers giving birth in the labour ward. The Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation shows that almost a quarter (23.9%) of the datazones in Ayrshire are among Scotland's 0-15% most health deprived; we believe our boxes give a good start to new mothers and their babies. A final benefit to vulnerable, pregnant women is the health benefit that comes with the provision of hygienic products which allows her to look after herself as well as her baby.

Go Digital 01 Aug 2018

Delivered over a 12 month period, ‘Go Digital’ will focus on upskilling key staff and volunteers within the organisation to develop and deliver digital skills training and support to isolated older people who we work with through our football memories and kinship care programmes. With funding to cover dedicated staff costs, associated volunteer costs and required digital kit, our 12 month project will be embedded into existing activity and will add significant capacity to our small organisation. We will undertake an essential skills audit across our football memories participants and Kinship Carer support group in order to understand the level of knowledge and skill. This will help us to develop a tailored training / support programme as well as giving us a baseline to monitor the project’s impact. We will use information from the Essential Digital Skills Framework to assess level of understanding / competence across communicating, handling information and content, transacting, problem solving, being safe/legal online. We anticipate a range of ability from foundation to basic level. Based on findings, our Project Officer (PO) and Volunteer Development Officer (VDO) will use online resources and support from the One Digital Team to develop a tailored programme, targeting key areas of need and detailing a timetable of engaging and relevant inputs (at least 2 x 1hr sessions per month over the 12mth project period). The PO and VDO will train existing volunteers who are interested in supporting the project to help deliver the sessions. We will purchase a set of 5 ipads and 5 google chrome laptops to ensure we have the necessary kit to allow participants to explore and learn. We will also put our Digital Skills Team (PO, VDO, Volunteers) forward to attend SCVO’s Digital Champions training to help support and add value to our project.
