As a small Clydebank based community regeneration charity, we have been supporting our local West Dunbartonshire community for 21 years.
Across West Dunbartonshire we primarily work with community-controlled Housing Associations to develop and deliver projects that support their tenants who are the most vulnerable to social isolation and financial hardship.
We support a number of projects that seek to engage wider communities within local activities.
We also support non-profit community organisations, helping them to develop, to secure funding and to deliver projects.
We work across the whole of Scotland and are currently delivering projects within Glasgow, Inverclyde, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, Dundee and Argyll & Bute.
All our projects are different and are responsive to the needs and the demands of the local community.
We currently deliver two targeted projects that support the local West Dunbartonshire community.
Our Healthy Pathways project aims to bring individuals from the local community who are socially isolated together to build a healthier, more resilient community.
It changes lives and gives local people the opportunity to create new friendships and discover themselves again.
We run several social sessions including our Book Club, Chatty Craft Club and our Sewing Club, all of these are free, and we provide all materials.
All clubs will be opening again for registration in June.
In addition, each year we deliver a series of personal development workshops and wellbeing sessions.
These are promoted via local partners and through our Facebook page.
This project is funded through the National Lottery Community Fund and The Robertson Trust to June 2024.

ENERGY ADVICE SERVICE
From the beginning of June, we will have an in-house Energy Advisor who can provide advice and support to Housing Association tenants to help tackle the on-going cost of living crises and the challenges that many households will face.
Our Energy Advisor will undertake home based visits, getting to know people and how they use energy within their homes, issues they have with bills and any fuel debt together with wider heating issues.
They will then provide specific, targeted help for each household.
Our Energy Advice Service aims to provide local people with advice on the most economical ways to heat their homes, help them find ways to minimise spend on bills and ensure they are accessing all available local support.
The project will also deliver a number of drop-in Energy Cafes, providing face-to-face sessions within local community centres and workshops on energy advice.
This project is currently funded for 12 months by the National Lottery Community Fund.
