Since March 2020, we have unfortunately not been able to deliver all of our regular programs as initially intended. We have, however, adapted to the emerging needs of the community as circumstances continued to change. New ways of providing outreach, keeping connected, supporting adults and children, and other forms of support have been welcomed by the people we serve. This has included working actively in partnership with many other local groups to deliver support and help within the Gorbals community.
It has been possible to recommence many of our activities; some fully and in-person, others in modified formats and/or online, with some brand new opportunities also emerging, Please follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts for the most recent updates and schedules.
More information and advice relating to the Gorbals response can be found via G5 Response
Thank you to all our funders who have been understanding and supportive during this situation, and the many volunteers and community members who have all continued to participate and support each other throughout the pandemic.
