Welcome The aim of this first Impact Report is to present a flavour of the work and achievements of local voluntary organisations and social enterprises and to highlight the positive impacts accomplished by them. We have included information gathered as a result of the conversations Voluntary Action East Renfrewshire (VAER) conducted with our local third sector organisations who attended the National Conversation events we ran from August to November 2015. The information is presented under each of East Renfrewshire’s 5 priority outcomes for the area. There is no doubt that in East Renfrewshire the people who live and work here have an appetite for working together and being involved in designing and potentially even delivering services and activities for the benefit of all. The time is ripe for realising these ambitions.
