GCDT supports the sustainable development of Govanhill's environment; economy and community. Our neighbourhood is Scotland's most ethnically diverse and much of what we do supports local ethnic minority groups to understand rights and entitlements; develop language and literacy skills; access services and connect with the community. We also lead on strategic initiatives to develop the local community - Thriving Places; the local voluntary sector and enterprise networks and act to catalyse other activity in the area. We manage a volunteering programme and run a community support centre which assists and signposts the local community. We are also a commercial landlord; with 30 workspaces let to a range of private; public and voluntary sector tenants.
Our main programmes of work include:
We work for the benefit of the whole community. A large focus of our work is supporting those less able to access services; particularly due to language; literacy and a lack of awareness of rights and entitlements.
