On Friday 22nd November, we hosted a celebration event in Edinburgh, highlighting some of the fantastic work we do at HOS, including putting a spotlight on our volunteer programme. At the event we welcomed staff, volunteers, board members and supporters of the organisation, as well as the Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government, Aileen Campbell.
Guests heard all about progress with the volunteering programme, and the different projects volunteers are working on – from the volunteer blog and case studies, to follow up calls and “Your Area” guides (read more here).
What was especially exciting at the event was to formally launch our Housing Buddies programme. Guests heard about the progress we have made so far and details about some of the engagements our Housing Buddies have already been involved with. You can read about Housing Buddies on the blog here.
The event also covered other updates about HOS, including the launch of our new website and details about our Military Matters programme too.
