Friday Lunch: Govan Community Project
Fri 2 Feb, 1pm - No.11 Gordon Street
with Ruth Lamb
Ruth works for the Govan Community Project. Govan Community Project, formerly Govan & Craigton Integration network is a community based organisation working in south west Glasgow. Originally a response of community and church members to the needs of newly arrived asylum seekers, they have developed over the years to become a local charity working with and for all the diverse communities of the Greater Govan area. They provide direct services such as weekly drop-ins, advice, information and advocacy, cultural events, a community flat, English classes, destitution food project, hate-crime reporting and an interpreting service. In addition the network facilitates forums bringing together public, voluntary and community organisations with local people to help plan public services, promote equal rights and opportunities and cross-cultural understanding, and to build bonds and links within and between communities.
Ruth will be telling us more about the project, especially about the cultural events and food-related programme she has been developing over the past few years.
