The Community Capacity project is part of Govanhill Baths’ Community Regeneration, and connects to the GBCT’s Wellbeing, GBArt, Rags to Riches and other programmes.
Building on the extensive work during the 2020 COVID-19 response, we are now providing resources, guidance, employment, training and governance support to local groups, so they can effectively and sustainably develop and rebuild their communities. Our approach is a bottom-up, grassroots, and community-run, providing tailored support to specific needs.
Our current partner organisations include:
The programme of activities focuses on engendering opportunities for connection, fomenting participation and a sense of communal purpose.
The Capacity Building project also provides platforms for the Govanhill community to voice their issues and organise, increasing people’s spheres of influence and providing opportunities for people to have a say on big issues.
Keep an eye out for our programme of public events, coming soon!
