Scottish Community Projects Awarded Funding from Tunstall Healthcare

The first round of funding has been awarded to South Ayrshire, Glasgow and Shetland Island Council to help create community projects that benefit local residents 8/18/2015 12:00:00 AM
18th August 2015 – Three Scottish councils have each been awarded grant funding from Tunstall Healthcare to enable them to create projects of their choosing, all of which are designed to benefit their local communities.
 
Tunstall is a supplier on the Telecare and Healthcare Technologies framework, put in place by Scotland Excel, a Centre of Procurement Expertise for local government. The fund is supported by community benefit clauses which are embedded within Scotland Excel contracts. These encourage suppliers to offer a number of social, economic and environmental benefits as part of the tender process. In this instance, Tunstall came up with the innovative idea to create a community fund as part their tender for the framework.
 
South Ayrshire Health and Social Care partnership will use the money to create an enclosed garden for patients staying on the rehabilitation ward, many of whom are elderly and may have cognitive impairment.
 
Lorraine Sheridan, Clinical Nurse Manager at Biggart Hospital said:

The garden project will be completed in phases, and we will be using this portion of the funding to purchase flowers and a seating area, creating a space that is safe and tranquil for patients who are recovering from illness or trauma. We are grateful for the support from Tunstall and Scotland Excel and look forward to showcasing the results later this year.
