Open Letter to the Scottish Government & NHS

March 18, 2020


Nicola Sturgeon

First Minister

Scottish Government

Dear Nicola,

As you know, I owe my life to the NHS. I am also privileged to work closely with the NHS through my charity, Finding Your Feet. We meet many who depend on the service daily. The staff from top to bottom are heroes amongst us.

Therefore, as a gesture in this difficult period, Finding Your Feet would like to offer our charity premises to the NHS as a support site for health care during the fight against Covid-19. We are very lucky to have access to 4 floors in a modern building in Paisley, not far from the RAH, which could easily be adapted to suit many purposes and we could clear out quickly. Our landlord has given us authority to offer the use and we could even offer up our staff to help if that would be of benefit.

In short, anything we can do, we will!

We are all having to adapt to these new circumstances in the best way we can. I feel it’s best to do it together.

Please thank the NHS staff for all they do for us, past & present, and pass on our gratitude for this testing time especially.

Yours sincerely,

Cor Hutton & the Finding Your Feet team
