Crossroads Youth & Community Association’s fundamental purpose is about improving the well-being of all community members; we work creatively with people to enjoy and celebrate community life, empowering them to lead a dignified life and challenge or address issues that affect them, their families and their communities.
Govanhill: The overall aim of the community development work in Govanhill is to promote and facilitate integration and help strengthen community cohesion and resilience. Its current focus is to work with women and their families to gain an in-depth understanding of the concerns, interests and barriers faced by a representative range of women living in the area.
Gorbals: The Barn is a dedicated youth centre with a concern for the welfare and informal education of young people aged between 8 to 24 years old. It is a place where young people come along voluntarily and choose to be involved. Crossroads believes it is important that young people have a place where they can relax, meet friends and have fun.
