The Govanhill Baths Community Trust is looking for new Board members who are committed to helping the Trust re-open the Baths as a Wellbeing Centre and contribute to the social, cultural and built regeneration of Govanhill as a community on the Southside of Glasgow.
These are exciting times for the Govanhill Baths Community Trust. After 15 years of determined campaigning the GBCT has been awarded substantial grant money to begin work on bringing the building back into operation. We have raised 95% of the funding needed to start the restoration and refurbishment of the building. We are currently in the process of issuing community shares in the project and transferring to a community benefit society.
The refurbishment is scheduled to begin in 2018 and will bring into service the Ladies’ pool, Learners’ pool, Turkish Suite and Sauna, Gym, Rooftop Gardens, a Community Kitchen/Cafe and Multipurpose community spaces. While the former public washhouse, or ‘steamie’, will be turned into a theatre venue and community events and arts space.
Applications are particularly invited from people who are willing to share their knowledge, skills or experience voluntarily in one of the following areas:
Charity Accounts and Finance
Formal swimming and sports clubs and associations

This is a voluntary position.
