Home-Start Glasgow North is in the running for an important share of the £20,000 Community Fund from Maryhill Housing Association.

The application proposal is for a new Nurture Group, working with families in smaller groups than is currently available through the larger, very successful Family Group, which happens each week.

Many families face isolation, loneliness and a detachment from our community for many reasons. There are families across Glasgow who don’t feel able to leave their own homes at all. Attending a larger group can be a challenge that many are unable to face to begin with. The option of a smaller group setting will allow an opportunity to meet new people, connect with services and build confidence to move forward with other support for their family.

The local community is asked to join a Decision Event on Saturday 10th March, from 1pm to 3pm at Maryhill Burgh Halls, where there will be a short presentation from each applicant and an opportunity to vote. 24 proposals have been submitted, so the decisions won’t be easy.

The decision of the community is expected to be announced soon after voting. Fingers crossed!
