We haven’t been able to deliver on programmes as initially intended. But we continue to adapt to the emerging needs of the community even as circumstances change. New ways of outreach, keeping connection, supporting adults and children and other forms of support have been welcomed by the people we serve.
During the period of the lockdown we have been active working in partnership with many other local groups in delivering support and help where needed within the Gorbals community. We shall continue with this for as long as such help is required.
More information and advice relating to the Gorbals response to the current situation can be seen here: G5 Response
Thank you to all our funders who have been understanding and supportive during this situation. The nature of what we do will emerge as the current restrictions are lifted but we will continue to focus on our key aims and objectives whatever happens.
