Saturday 15 September 2018
10am to 4pm
20 Crimea Street
You are welcome to tour our building at your own pace, or come and join one of our guided tours. Hospitality is a key part of our work, and refreshments will be served throughout the day. This is part of the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival.
When people visit us they are often surprised that a building that caters for people who are homeless and marginalised is so well designed and full of light. Join us and learn more about how our building facilitates our work with people who are homeless and marginalised. Explore our roof garden, IT suite, music studio, art space and gym and hear the stories of some of our guests.
Many of our guests had incredibly difficult childhoods and received little or no affirmation from parents or teachers. Find out how we help our guests grow in confidence and discover and develop their skills. Our guests have many skills and talents and we look forward to sharing these with you.
Find out about our preventative work at our Child and Family Centre in Govan where we work with families affected by poverty. Our aim here is to ensure the children have the best possible start in life and that the parents can also fulfil their own potential.
This event is free and there is no need to book. We look forward to seeing you!
