‘Poverty shouldn’t be a part of anybody’ – the social project changing a community
The Daily Express says: Volunteers at Easthall Residents Association offer support to others in need, with the help of funds raised through The Health Lottery
A social hub in Glasgow is boosting its community’s mental health and so much more after benefiting from funding raised through The Health Lottery. Easthall Residents Association, which was founded nearly 50 years ago, encourages volunteers – from teenagers to people in their 70s – to offer support to others in need.
Project co-ordinator Andy Gilbert says: “We wanted to create a social hub where we can improve skills, increase people’s social networks and invite them to participate in activities that otherwise they’d never have tried. “Over the last seven years we’ve provided support to adults with mental and physical health conditions. We also run various youth clubs and a homework club four days a week, where we support children with their learning and play fun games.”
