You might remember a group of 40 people who sang their hearts out at the Social Services Expo in March 2014? That was 'In Full Voice' (previously the social services choir).
Over the past months, 'In Full Voice' has gone from strength to strength. As a group, it's been honing its skills, having fun and learning lots of new songs. And now it is ready to showcase all its hard work to the world.
A performance has been arranged for Monday 20th October at 7pm at Theatre Nemo (130 Bridgegate, Glasgow, Glasgow City G1 5HZ).
IRISS is involved in the design and facilitation of a third event in a series exploring the meaning of home and how home contributes to individual and community well-being. It is being held on 23 October at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute.
The workshop is funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute and forms part of the 2014 Well-being theme.
As part of Self Management Week (29th September to 3rd October), the ALLIANCE hosted the Self Management Awards at the Garden Lobby at Scottish Parliament on 2 October. One of the key aims of Self Management Week 2014 is to improve understanding of how volunteering can be used as a tool for self management – provoking increased skills, self-esteem and well-being.

IRISS.FM features audio content, including interviews, discussions and presentations related to social services topics of interest.
