We are excited to share our Impact Report for 2021 - 2022! Learn about all the amazing support we have given to the people and communities of Perth & Kinross over the past year.
One year ago, we started to plan our Golden Anniversary Charity Ball, celebrating 50 years of supporting so many across Perth & Kinross. Today, working alongside others, we now help over 6,000 people live-life-better every year. Sadly, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel our Charity Ball. Supporters across Perth & Kinross have told us that they cannot afford to buy tickets, are concerned about what the coming months will bring, and are reluctant to spend money when the future is so uncertain.
Loneliness and social isolation are associated with a reduced lifespan equal to someone smoking 15 cigarettes per day - and greater than someone with obesity. Loneliness is also linked to an increased risk of heart disease, dementia, anxiety, depression, addiction, and suicide.
PKAVS Third Sector Interface (TSI) and Perth and Kinross Health and Social Care Partnership are delighted to launch the Perth and Kinross Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.
