At CHANGE we are working with a range of local and national partners to help develop childcare in Glasgow East. Here you can read a little about the work we are doing together.
Children in Scotland is the lead partner in CHANGE and provide the staff for the project team. Support is provided from several of our other staff members from teams such as events, communications and participation and engagement.
Glasgow Centre for Population Health carries out research and supports new approaches to improve people’s health and reduce inequalities, and shares its evidence and knowledge to influence change. GCPH are providing an ongoing evaluation of the project using data they have collected on current childcare provision in the area.
Glasgow City Council runs lots of nurseries and schools, and is working to create more nursery places to make sure everyone who wants to can access their child’s free hours at nursery (also called national entitlement hours). Check out their website for information.
Thriving Places is a Glasgow city-wide community planning partnership. The project is working with the Parkhead, Dalmarnock and Camlachie area team to develop links between CHANGE and the local community.
Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland is a project taking place in Bridgeton and Dalmarnock. Their aim is to bring local resources and organisations together to improve outcomes for children and families living in these areas. CHANGE and the Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland team are sharing knowledge and working together on some aspects of community engagement.
