Clydebank Can is a Community Links Scotland project, funded for two years by the Scottish Government’s Investing in Communities Fund.
This new project aims to bring people together to create a more vibrant and socially and economically active Clydebank town centre.
We believe that small scale community-led activity is the way to do that, and that together we can create a community which meets the needs of local people and gives everyone the opportunity to be involved.
Clydebank Can enables local people to come together and enjoy learning new skills.
Y Sort It, a local youth charity, are offering free cycle hire for local families.
They also provide free lunch, safety equipment and route maps.
Awestruck Academy are offering young people free music lessons and the opportunity to come together for a live band performance at the end of a 10-week course.
For adults there is a free online photography course delivered by Inclusive Images and RIG Art’s are providing online arts and craft sessions, also for adults.
Check out the website or follow us on facebook to find out how to book!
Many more activities are planned for the summer including free canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding, as well as more music lessons and outdoor activities.
We hope that more people from Clydebank will get involved, and also make use of the fantastic online Directory which lists over 200 local groups and organisations which help support our community.

Fiona Clark, Project Co-ordinator, said “Once lockdown restrictions are eased, we hope that the project will facilitate more live music and entertainment in Three Queen’s Square.
“We would like to see local people make the most of the canal and bandstand area, and bring more life into the area through community events and activities.”
Stephen Singer, Director of Community Links Scotland, said “In the future we hope to create a Development Trust, represented by local organisations, through which we can identify local needs and bring more funding into Clydebank to support our community as a collective.”
