Three Things for Thursday – 4th February 2021

Hi folks and welcome to February, the month of romance and pancakes – what more could anybody want!

1/ Counselling for WLSEN members – as a member benefit, we’re now able to offer counselling support for up to 6 leaders of our member social enterprises. These will be delivered by The Bridge Community Project, will consist of up to 4 sessions and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To request, please complete the form here.

2/ Kickstart – (the funding to create new 6-month job placements for 16-24yr olds) has changed, so employers can now apply for a place direct to the DWP or via a local Gateway eg., West Lothian Council or West Lothian College.

3/ Are you Procurement ready? – this month P4P is offering 10 social enterprises a FREE procurement health check – its first come first served so, if its something of any interest, email

Extra bit – some member news – S.M.I.L.E have a vacancy for a part time CYP Counsellor and both Polbeth and The Bridge are open for counselling referrals.
