What we do

We support communities both in and out with Glasgow, by addressing the needs of local people. We create projects that promote positive health and well-being by connecting people to services in their community. We aim to build strong resilient families who can grow together through family learning, outdoor activities, sport and the arts.

Our projects are designed to address unmet needs in our communities across Glasgow. Our volunteers and partners help to make our projects happen. We adapt and respond to individual needs, making our projects easy to replicate and adapt to your community and situation. If you are interested in delivering a project, please get in touch.

We are for hire.

We can work with your school or church or charity to deliver these projects on your behalf.
