G53Together is a collective of community groups, volunteers and local people from the Greater Pollok community who have all come together to better support the community. Some of those involved in this project have been volunteering and working within the community for over 25 years delivering a wide range of help and opportunities whilst also trying to secure permanent premises to build a community hub which is finally within our grasp. Hundreds of local residents have taken this journey with us over the years through volunteering within community groups such as SWAMP, The Village, Crookston Community Group, SAPC, GPS and thousands more have participated in our activities over the last 25 year. We have provided a wide range of opportunities such as employability training, creative arts, music production, personal development programs, events, media training etc In addition to this we have also supported the community in many other ways such as providing local people with food and energy to clothing and computer equipment and providing musical entertainment to local care homes and sheltered housing etc
During the pandemic we have continued to be active throughout whilst also working on developing the new community hub on Brockburn road, which will turn this property into a thriving community hub for future generations to enjoy.
The G53Together collective continues to evolve with many more groups, organisations and local people joining this movement.
