Distance Aware Scheme 

Jan 2022 – As we move out of COVID-19 restrictions, the Scottish Government has just announced the Distance Aware scheme.  This will make free badges and lanyards  available to people who wish to show others they would welcome additional space and extra care while out in public. It is a voluntary initiative to help those on the Highest Risk List or anyone who feels worried about mixing with others as we adapt to living with COVID-19. More information is available HERE
