We are delighted to announce that the Robertson Trust have granted funding to the Centre for the next three years. This is a real lifeline for the Centre and provides a solid foundation for us to keep the Centre open  Although this is substantially less than we previously received from The Integrated Grants Fund – we hope it will allow us to continue to provide spaces for community groups at affordable prices.

I’m sorry to have to report that Glasgow City Council have refused to grant the Centre further Core funding after September 2020.

Just when we had received the endorsement of the Scottish Land Fund who invested £330k in allowing us to bring the building into community ownership, in February this year, losing financial support from Glasgow City Council feels like a like another huge blow to a community who have suffered so much over the last few years.

This decision could have a devastating impact on c.1000 regular users of the Centre, not to mention the staff, partners and stakeholders.

The Trustees and Staff are currently making every effort to identify alternative funding to secure the future of this vital, community run and locally led community centre, the only one in the city centre.

We are determined to keep the doors open one way or another.

Hi Folks. I’ve been receiving various enquiries recently from people who are keen to return to the many groups who are based in the Centre, so this is just a wee update on the situation. Scottish government guidelines at present state “community centres, youth centres and similar – unless for the purpose of hosting essential voluntary or public services, such as food banks, homeless services, and blood donation sessions must remain closed”

I do not know how long this situation will continue. To stay informed, please follow the latest announcements which can be reached via this link : http://www.gov.scot/


Stay safe
Ross
