Why we do it?
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” Albert Einstein
We already have great services in East Renfrewshire that improve the lives of many people. However, we also know that many people are lonely, disconnected and facing challenges that affect every aspect of their life. Simply adding more funding, services and programmes are not the answer. While this approach might see improvement for specific individuals and families, when you think of East Renfrewshire as a whole community the old ways don’t address the inequalities that we have seen in the past.
We need to understand why this is the case, and find new ways for us to work together to make change happen.
