The Pollokshields Trust was established in 2016 as a community anchor organisation
We are an enabling body which encourages the development of community empowerment within the burgh of Pollokshields and provides support services to existing and new community organisations.
The company has been formed to benefit the community of Pollokshields with the following objectives:
– To advance community development of the area of benefit by maintaining, improving and regenerating its physical, economic, social and cultural infrastructure, and assisting people who are at a disadvantage because of their social and economic circumstances;
– To advance protection or improvement of the Community through the preservation and conservation of the natural environment, the maintenance, improvement or provision of environmental amenities for the Community, the provision of other environmental and regeneration projects and/or the preservation and conservation of buildings or sites of architectural, historic or other importance to the Community.
On our part we have been busy since summer when restrictions were eased but as we face another lockdown we want to reassure everyone that we will continue to listen and find ways to help our community through these difficult days. Without the support of our wonderful community, our local partners and of course our invaluable volunteers we would not have been so successful. There are far too many to name but we look forward to new adventures and welcoming more of you to our little green haven.
