100 people who use Turning Point Scotland services have now signed up for the new TPS Connects membership scheme.

Members receive a welcome pack including a membership card, regular news and information about the services and access to a range of different events and activities to help make them feel more part of the organisation.

TPS Connects was launched at the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow and over 50 people we support turned out to join the discussion about what they want from the membership.

Aileen Reid, Access and Inclusion Co-ordinator for Turning Point Scotland gave a short presentation about the membership and our Policy Officer, Faye Keogh added some information about getting involved in government consultations.

Members were asked to have three discussions with others at the table to look at topics including, what do you like doing in your spare time?, what would you like TPS Connects to do for you? and what do you want from future TPS Connects meetings?

Lynn Fairservice from Glasgow 2014 gave a presentation about the Commonwealth Games. Craig Winter, Business Development and Improvement Manager at Turning Point Scotland closed the meeting and presented the 1st and 100th member with an award.
