Busy line-up as our March roadshows and Pluses take shape

The dates and locations for our March support and advice roadshows have been set with two plus events scheduled.

Our first visit will be to Moffat and the Old Well Theatre on Wednesday March 20, which will also be our first Roadshow Plus of the year.

From 10am, Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway (TSDG) is welcoming Computer Law Training Limited – a small and friendly company based in central Scotland – for a free session on GDPR.

The firm was established in 2010 with the aim of helping clients be compliant with data protection laws by providing cost effective, down-to-earth, training and support.

CLT are the preferred training partner and provider to the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations and have just committed to another 18-month contract providing training for the Third Sector.

Free tickets are still available for this event HERE.

This will take us up to 12pm when the normal roadshow will start with support and advice available from Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway team members and representatives of Palliative Care in the region.

Our next roadshow takes us to Kirkconnel Miners Memorial Centre on Friday March 22. From 12pm-1pm, Social Security Scotland will make their first appearance at one of our roadshows to reveal more about the new Agency and give attendees the chance to have their say on where they should be as they roll out their local service in Dumfries and Galloway.

The representatives will remain at the roadshow to talk to people and gather views for moving forward from 1-4pm and, again, team members from TSDG will be present with support and advice. Social Security Scotland will also return to our April roadshows.

Another Roadshow Plus will take place in Stranraer on Tuesday March 26 at Burns House.

A Partnership and Collaborative Working learning event with input from the Scottish Community Development Centre (SCDC), TSDG and guest speakers takes place from 10am to 12.30pm.

SCDC’s David Allan will give the national perspective with examples and there will also be talks from TSDG, and Sue Vest and Craig MacLachan, of Community Access Surveys and Shopping Buddies respectively, as well as Joe Gough, of Wigtownshire Stuff.

Free tickets for this event are available HERE.

From 1pm, the team from TSDG with support and advice will be joined by Eva Milroy, of Dumfries and Galloway College with a digital skills training workshop.

Our final stop of the month is on Wednesday March 27 at Castle Douglas Community Centre from 1-4pm where TSDG staff will be joined by Castle Douglas Development Forum; Sue Vest, of Community Access Surveys; the Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership; and Dumfries and Galloway College of Technology.
