Caring about the community
Why we do what we do
The original need for these projects was to reduce gang related violence, anti-social behaviour and crime amongst young people from different communities across the North East and West of Glasgow and to engage them in positive activities both inter and intra community. These programmes have been highly successful in supporting significant reductions in crime and anti-social behaviour in NE and NW Glasgow and in engaging young people in community life.
