About the Project
We completed a business plan and evaluation with local charities, agencies, local people in this area, the feedback was eminence, as there is nothing in Glasgow that compares to what we have planned. Some where asking to attend right away. Everyone in the area will benefit from this. We have 402 members, 50 volunteers and 20 members of staff alone to start with. Most of our members and volunteers have some form of disability and we hope to educate them in health and well being. We already provide a training kitchen, where we teach how to choose healthier options and how to cook them. It is very popular, we all want our members, volunteers and staff to have the best opportunities possible, this will enhance their quality of life. We have created a sensory garden to compliment the gym.
