Now that life seems to be moving in a more positive direction we wanted to play a part in bringing the Gorbals community back together, after what has been a really difficult time for us all.
We've all been missing out on the things we enjoy, whether that's a local group we're part of, a trip to the shop or an exercise class. Now, as we seem to be moving to a more normal way of life, we wanted to focus on bringing something positive to the community we love so we made £30,000 available to local groups, projects and individuals to bring great ideas and activities to you.
We asked for ideas that focus on bringing us back together in safe ways, to help build our confidence to take part in things again, rebuild our connections and improve our physical and mental wellbeing.
We were so inspired by the ideas we received and delighted to see so many new groups and organisations apply for funds. There's a great range of ideas for you to support from activities for children and young people through to older people and everyone in between we know that whatever you decide to vote for will bring something amazing to our community.
Remember, if you know someone or a group of people who live in the Gorbals but don't have access to the internet we can provide a paper ballot. Just drop us an email at email@example.com and we'll send one out.
