A LOCAL politician has said he was "delighted" to meet with the new CEO of Recovery Across Mental Health (RAHM).

It comes after Tom Arthur MSP met with Stephen McLellan from the good cause to wish him well in his impending retirement.

During the meeting, the politician also met the organisation's new CEO, Peter Jung.

RAHM is a Scottish charity which has bases in East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire.

They provide support to people across both areas through a range of services including support at the point of crisis, one-to-one counselling, social and physical activity groups, and help individuals to gain or maintain housing and employment.

Tom Arthur MSP said: “I was really pleased to welcome Stephen again prior to his retirement at the end of the year, and to meet Peter as he prepares to take the helm at RAMH.

"I have enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the organisation and have organised regular catch-ups with Stephen over the years.

"I look forward to continuing in that vein with the new CEO going forward.

“RAMH offer a range of hugely important services to vulnerable individuals throughout Renfrewshire South and I will keep doing everything that I can to ensure my constituents are supported in every way possible.

“I wish Stephen well in his retirement and thank him sincerely for his years of service to the communities across Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire”
