Easterhouse has a lot going for it - it's the east of Glasgow's cultural centre, bringing, through Platform in the Bridge, a wide range of arts and cultural opportunities to Easterhouse, and through Glasgow Kelvin College, a broad range of vocational skills and arts development programmes. Easterhouse hosts 'All Write' the Easterhouse Writers' Group. It's got work underway to invest in the Shandwick centre; it's close to the Fort, employing many local people; it's got a strong voluntary sector providing many local services. Its local housing associations work in partnership with each other and with others, and teamwork and partnership has been a feature of local services for many years.
A local profile of Easterhouse is available from the Understanding Glasgow site at: http://www.understandingglasgow.com/profiles/1_ne_sector/12_easterhouse.
Glasgow Kelvin College is currently seeking to employ a Community Connector on behalf of the partnership – the Community Connector will work to connect local people to each other and to local services and planning, and local services to each other and local people. Watch this space for contact details once the Community Connector is in place but in the meantime if you’re looking for information about Thriving Places, what’s #MadeinEasterhouse or how to become involved, contact Craig Green (firstname.lastname@example.org)
