Dae Ye Ken? has been designed to help tackle not only some of the unique challenges which have surfaced in these challenging times, but the initiative will also demonstrate how there can be health, financial and environmental benefits to many residents within the community.

The partnership – comprising Aberdeenshire Council, Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership, Home Energy Scotland and Kincardine and Mearns Citizens’ Advice Bureau – know the Kincardine & Mearns area well and will be on hand to offer help and advice.

In light of the Covid-19 restrictions, participants will be encouraged to join online webinars, watch support videos prepared by the partners, read up on advice and get signposted for further help and support.

Councillor Wendy Agnew, chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s Kincardine and Mearns Area Committee, said: “There is little doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic has had and continues to have a significant impact on our communities.

“This innovative local initiative is an excellent example of how our partners can work collaboratively to achieve real community benefit. I find it encouraging that there will be something for everybody within this programme and I am sure it will be warmly welcomed by our communities.”

Area Manager Bruce Stewart added: “This initiative is a great example of practical partnership working at its best and demonstrates the strength of linkages and relationships within the Community Planning family in Kincardine and Mearns.”
