Linkes is a community led project; which was started and is governed by local people. The community we work within is diverse; with a significant number of refugees and economic migrants; and within the lowest 5% of deprived communities in Scotland (SMID 2016). Our overall purpose is to provide opportunities for learning and well-being and to utilise our community facilities for the benefit of the local community.
We take a community development approach to our work, which means that we aim to engage with people in the community and to try to ensure that our services meet their needs and that people have the opportunity to become involved in our organisation.
We provide a vibrant programme of weekly groups and learning opportunities for all members of the community, including children and young people, and older people. We also provide information and help to signpost people to other local services and organisations.
Our work promotes integration and we coordinate a number of events throughout the year to bring people together.
