Stakeholders meeting for charity SHAX in Dumfries

SHAX is holding a stakeholders meeting this month and anyone involved with organisations who support people moving on from homelessness and/or in crisis through poverty is welcome to attend.

It is being held on Wednesday July 24, from 10.30am to 12pm at the Baptist Centre, Dumfries, and will be attended by Lesley Urquhart, Senior Welfare Officer in the council’s Financial Inclusion and Welfare support team.

SHAX’s Social Enterprise Manager, Joyce Harkness, said: “Organisations are probably facing the same challenge as SHAX – an increasing demand for our support and strain on our resources.

“Lesley will give us an update on the Social Welfare Fund and then we will have group discussions to see how we can work together to face these challenges. There will also be an opportunity for networking when lunch is provided.’’
