PKAVS - Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service (2013) Annual Report
The PKAVS (2013) Annual Report provides an update of the organisation’s income and expenditure and a wonderful insight into some of the work the charity undertakes supporting local people in need. Ethnic minorities are among those in receipt of support. The report details the activities that PKAVS undertake; for example, the Carers’ Services which supports those caring for elderly, sick or disabled partners or family members in addition to providing information and advice on carers’ rights. Activities undertaken by their service for Minority Ethnic Communities (MEAD) are discussed in the report, these have increased by 270% on the previous year. Eastern European migrants have made the most frequent use of MEAD’s services but a sizable number of Chinese and South Asian members of the community have also accessed MEAD. In addition to an update on the organisation’s Mental Wellbeing;Services and the activities of Voluntary Action Perthshire, the report gives details of the social-cultural activities and events designed to raise funds as well as bringing the multi-cultural community of Perth and Kinross together.
