Connecting People and Communities

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do.  

People's lives are richer and fuller when they are included and can contribute to the area they live in. We encourage people to seek new opportunities and contribute as employees, volunteers, partners, community builders and valued neighbours.  We support people to live ordinary lives, in ordinary communities where together they can achieve extraordinary things.

All of our workers have a focus on providing support in ways which explore and promote opportunities for people to enjoy what their local area has to offer. Together with each person we explore their interests and map out what is available locally, identifying groups who offer opportunities to become involved with shared interests and activities. We work in partnership with other organisations to build their skills and confidence around being inclusive of people with a wide range of needs.

We have developed a number of Community Hubs in Glasgow that enable people to learn new skills and increase their confidence through activities like arts and crafts, drama, cookery and gardening. These activities also help people link up with others in the community who have similar interests.

We also employ Community Development Workers, whose roles are focused on mapping networks and building bridges between the people we support and the full range of opportunities available in the local community.  The work has led to the creation of new community based resources and initiatives providing opportunities for people to be more involved in community life.  

The partnerships we enjoy with Key and The Advisory Group (TAG) greatly benefit our approach, ensuring it reaches a wider range of people supported, not just by us, but by peer organisations too.
