CHANGE: Childcare and Nurture Glasgow East
The CHANGE project worked with communities in Glasgow East to develop childcare services in the area from 2016-2020. The project was set up to create a sustainable childcare model with family and community involvement at its core. Led by Children in Scotland, the project was funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
The CHANGE team gathered the views of children, parents and carers and local services and set up the CHANGE Hub to strengthen local collaboration and challenge the barriers identified by families.
In February 2021 CHANGE published the project findings. This included an animation, a written report and six infographics. Titled We Know What We Need and voiced by local families, the animation summarises what local people shared about their experiences of childcare in the East End of Glasgow.
