Dear readers, friends, listeners,
I have been silent for a little while but i'm edging my way back into bloggerland slowly. Now since the trek I haven't asked for much from you but now i'm going to ask for a little favour. Twitter friend Ross @ThirdSectorLab and @RelScot need your help and a wee vote please. Below are Ross' own words from his blog. Please read. Please vote. It'll take you 5 minutes max.
Vote for Relationships Scotland
The charity I've recently started working for, Relationships Scotland, has been short-listed in an exciting competition to win a complete overhaul of our website. unXPOSEd (half digital agency/half social mission) will provide £4000 worth of development time to the winner.
We're the only Scottish charity in the final and you can vote for us by following the link below (it literally takes two seconds to vote):
Why the heck should I give up 2 seconds of my time you're possibly asking yourself. Well here's a little bit about what Relationships Scotland do and why your vote is so important:
Our vision is to make counselling, mediation and family support for Scotland's people a right not a privilege.
Working in partnership with our network of local services across the country we help make sure Scotland's children have the best start in life by providing high quality family support which is accessible to all.
When couples ask for the help of a Relationships Scotland counsellor they're able to make more sense of their problems. Where relationships do break down, our family mediation services help make sure children are spared unnecessary exposure to their parents’ conflict. Our network of child contact centres enable both parents to continue to be truly involved in the lives of their children.
A new website would help us truly engage with children and parents, providing a valuable online family support resource and strengthening our role as the leading voice for families in Scotland.
Hopefully that gives you a better idea about why we'd like you to vote for us. There's a few ways you can support us in this competition:
