Govan Community Project is a community based organisation working in the south of Glasgow. Originally a response of community and church members to the needs of newly arrived asylum seekers, we have developed over the years to become a local charity working with and for all the diverse communities of the Greater Govan area and beyond.
Govan Community Project provides direct services such as weekly drop-ins, advice, information and advocacy, cultural events, a community flat, English classes, destitution food project, hate-crime reporting and an interpreting service. In addition the network facilitates forums bringing together public, voluntary and community organisations with local people to help plan public services, promote equal rights and opportunities and cross-cultural understanding, and to build bonds and links within and between communities.
We are continuing to offer the following services, with most of our staff working from home:
- Our Casework Team are offering support via the telephone (freephone number: 0800 310 0054)
- Our Men's Group and Women's Groups are meeting weekly on Zoom. Women's Group is also running weekly walks in small groups
- Our ESOL classes are running on Zoom
- After a period of offering online support and outdoor activities, our Homework Club is now taking place at our community flat again, with social distancing in place
PANTRY VOUCHER SCHEME
We provide referral 'vouchers' for asylum seekers so that they can access their local Pantry for free. Referrals are available for people in the asylum process, who are destitute and/or have NRPF.
Please note that we are not able to refer to all Pantries in Glasgow at this time.
