We're fresh from our last voting round which saw our highest voting turnout ever, but we didn't want to let the energy and momentum slide so we've launched Reconnect!
Reconnect is our response to the Covid-19 pandemic and we really hope it will bring about some amazing, creative and fun activity to the Gorbals.
We need things to boost our happiness and help us feel involved. Our last community vote was the most successful vote we've ever had and we firmly believe it was because people had a way to feel involved and included, even if it was remotely!
Reconnect has been part funded by Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership, with their £15,000 contribution we can make £30,000 available to support ideas across three priority areas:
Reducing isolation and loneliness
Improving physical health and well-being
Improving mental health and well-being
We've chosen these areas because research shows us that the pandemic has had a negative impact across each of them.
The Gorbals is full of energy and community spirit and we hope the funds available through Reconnect will give a boost to local people, groups and organisations!
