Charity No SC050744

Spirit of Springburn SCIO  was set up initially as Springburn Regeneration Forum.  We're made up of local residents and local service providers from Springburn.

 

As a result of work undertaken by Springburn Community Council back in 2017, we held our own community consultation in 2019 and updated in 2022, as a way of planning for the future of our community.  The result is we have our own Community Vision and Action Plan which is where our new charity comes in.

 

A list of 9 targeted projects were identified by the local community (the park, youth work, the winter gardens, better shops, nice places to go for leisure/fun and more).  To progress the work ourselves, we set up our own charity.

 

Spirit of Springburn the SCIO was established at the beginning of 2021 (the delay being the covid pandemic) and provides a much needed and valued service for the community.

 

At present we set up and are currently running, along with Springburn Parish Church and other partners, Springburn Parish Food Hub. Open Mon, Wed and Fridays (emergencies anytime), we assist many folk in need of food and other emergency support. Partners include social work, Health Visitors, GP surgeries, housing officers, many asylum seeker and refugee support groups and religious organisations. We will help those in need, no judgement and in confidence.

 

Currently the Partners above use us to work via, this is undertaken currently within a Hub located which is within Springburn Shopping Centre and Springburn Parish Church.

 

Spirit of Springburn SCIO is in the process of transferring what was the original Springburn Library beside the Springburn Scotrail station from the ownership of GCC to community ownership to provide much needed community space for the community for both workspace and community events
