North United Communities is a community-based organisation delivering youth and family support services in north Glasgow. We work in partnership with a range of organisations to provide opportunities and improve lives.
North United Communities (NUC) is dedicated to strengthening the community. We want children, young people and their families to lead happier, healthier lives. Our aim is to be a part of a chain reaction of mutual goodwill and support.
Our approach is to create safe, welcoming places where people can meet up, have fun, socialise, share activities and acquire knowledge.
We deliver at our centres through group activities and one-to-one sessions. We also visit families and carry out street work.
We uphold the community’s capacity to support each other. This can only take place in an atmosphere of mutual goodwill.
Since the start of April NUC has been busy responding to the needs and issues of children young people and families resulting from Covid-19, working in partnership with local organisations including LoveMilton The Ashgill Recreation Centre - ARC Lambhill Stables Colston Milton Parish Church
We have supported three food distribution Hubs and provided access to over £25,000 of supermarket vouchers distributed amongst Milton, Ruchill, Wyndford/Maryhill.
Our family support and adult well-being programmes have continued to operate throughout as this has been a lifeline and a first port of call for many of our existing members and new referrals.
We have continued to offer an online service for children and families via Zoom and other social media platforms, which will continue until our venues are available for use.
We offer a holiday activity and food programme programme in Ruchill, Milton, Wyndford/Maryhill
