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.
Our casework team are continuing to provide asylum support advice via telephone and video link.
We distribute parcels of fresh fruit and veg on a Wednesday each week. Parcels are available to all but demand is high. Please call at 9am on a Wednesday morning to put your name on the list. Food parcels are usually ready for collection from 2pm the same day.
Our community groups are maintaining contact and activities with our group members via social media and video conferencing Our ESOL is on hold but we are looking at developing digital provision. Staff are keeping contact with students to reduce isolation
