We are delighted to announce the latest recipients of a Scotwest Community Award.

Knit For Peace Bearsden & Milngavie is a self- funded community group that knits/crochets garments and blankets to support those in need in Glasgow and West and East Dunbartonshire areas, distributing to a number of charities such as The Red Cross, Refuweegee, Babes in The Wood and GN1BFSS as well as care homes and nurseries in Glasgow. The award will fund the purchase of enough yarn for the group to run their Blanket For Children drive which proved successful last year.

Inverclyde Carers Centre is a welcoming space that supports local carers and young carers of family members or friends due to illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse. They were nominated by Scotwest Member Stacey Gillem in order to fund the fitting out of a new Carers Café at the centre.
