Our own Margaret Pattison attended the recent Older People’s Conference “Young at Heart ” at Dumfries Housie in Cumnock.
Margaret explained and fed back to the Federation that ‘it was very well supported by the tenants and staff of East Ayrshire. Aside from all the fun workshops which highlighted several opportunities for tenants to talk about well being in the Community. We had great entertainment from the talented employees of EAC Vibrant Community Staff’
She commented further that ‘Events like this are a great chance ( thanks to EAC) for Tenants to voice what they feel would improve their well being and independence etc . The bonus being with EAC staff at hand to get their thoughts heard first hand…no hanging on the phone, out of hours or not available here! It was for me a first time at such an event and I hope to attend more’
Her overall view of the event was
- To be heard – we the tenants can speak out.
- To hear – EAC are listening.
