GWSF’s purpose is to promote represent and campaign on behalf of local community controlled housing associations and co-operatives in Glasgow and the West of Scotland. We do this by:
This year our free summer regeneration conference will focus on the Year of Young People in Scotland. Delegates will hear from a range of great plenary speakers including the author, columnist and performing artist Loki aka Darren McGarvey, and crucially from young people themselves. GWSF members will showcase the work they do with young people in their communities in our popular café sessions. View the programme and book a place here
Our committee-member led campaign group reconvened this year to focus on the key issues which impact on CCHAs and on their communities. Maureen Cope, the Group’s Chair gave a rousing account of the Bedroom Tax Campaign at our annual conference last year. The group has been meeting with CPAG, the Poverty Alliance, and Glasgow Council for the Voluntary Sector to plan where it will be most useful to focus its energies over the coming months.
The Campaign Group will keep members informed on its activities at the Forum’s regular open meetings and we’ll also keep you updated here. Watch this space!
