A drive to get children out to play has been launched. The year-long campaign, “Away and Play”, is powered by Inspiring Scotland. It will highlight the benefits of free and unstructured play in encouraging imagination, promoting risk-taking, improving health and helping children collaborate.

Research published in the academic journal Early Education and Development is part of a growing body of research on the subject. This has shown that children with higher levels of active outdoor play had improved cognition which resulted in better academic performance in reading and mathematics.

These findings are supported by evidence from Inspiring Scotland’s Active Play programme, which currently works with primary schools in Glasgow in partnership with Glasgow City Council, through which class teachers have reported greater alertness and focus from children following active outdoor play sessions.

One Big Picnic One Big Community is a free event for the people by the people from 12-4pm on Sunday 3 September in George Square.

The aim of the event is to bring people together by creating a space for sharing food and a wee blether, sitting next to each other, showing understanding to differences regardless of background, cultural, religious, sexual orientation, social or educational status, homelessness or wealth. Highlighting Glasgow is indeed a city of caring people – people make Glasgow!

The event brings together community projects which prepare and serve free meals/provide food parcels on a regular basis  to those in need, such as the elderly, homeless and destitute. We believe that everyone has the right to good accessible food and should be treated fairly and with dignity. Therefore we will be serving wonderful dishes from around the world to all.

Overheads like heating, lighting and water have a huge impact on small organisations running costs. And with the price of electricity, water and raw materials in Scotland expected to rise over the coming years, small organisations and businesses are already bracing themselves for a hit.

Resource Efficient Scotland have suggested 9 practical ways that your organisation can hold on to its money by reducing energy and resource use.

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is supporting Scottish charities to publicise their charitable status by providing them with a personalised registration logo.

Everyone running a charity should be aware of the legal requirement to promote charitable status to the public. This is set out in section 15 of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and explained in the guidance on the OSCR website.

To help charities do this, OSCR has produced a charity registration logo that can be downloaded from their entry on the Scottish Charity Register and used on a charity’s website, email signatures and publications.
