Charity No SC050744
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.
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
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.
