Govan Community Project

We are a charity based in Glasgow offering community groups and advocacy services for people who have travelled to this country in seek of asylum. We support people practically by offering a weekly fresh food distribution, weekly support groups for adults and children and coordinated volunteering and educational opportunities for people who have been affected by the asylum process.

We provide direct services such as weekly drop-ins, advice, information and advocacy, cultural events, a community flat, English classes, destitution food project, hate-crime reporting and an interpreting service. In addition, the network facilitates forums bringing together public, voluntary and community organisations with local people to help plan public services, promote equal rights and opportunities and cross-cultural understanding, and to build bonds and links within and between communities.
