Community Engagement and Activity team

Our Community Engagement and Activity team works with individuals to support their engagement and involvement with their local and wider community.

The work of this team has received fantastic reviews from the people we work for, our staff and the Care Inspectorate.

An art project at the Fullarton Service culminated in an exhibition showcasing the paintings, drawings, poetry and photography.

The ‘Show Me Something Too’ exhibition was opened by former Scotland and Partick Thistle goalkeeper Alan Rough who supports the service.

Through the art project, the people we work for had more opportunity for social interaction and increased their confidence.

People at our Maryhill Personalisation and Self-directed Support Service (Learning Disabilities Glasgow) transformed the area around their homes into a community garden.

By growing healthy fruit and veg they’re keeping active, learning about healthy eating, getting out in the open air and mixing with other people.

The garden has become a vital way of promoting health through increased physical activity, reducing isolation and giving people more say in how they live their lives.
