It’s full-steam ahead for Scotland’s newest Children’s Neighbourhood – we’re now also underway in Clydebank!

Our work centres around the town’s community at Radnor Park. We’re collaborating with local youth charity ‘Y Sort It‘ to explore provision for children and young people in the area.

The town of Clydebank has seen significant changes over the past few decades – particularly in light of economic shifts such as the decline of the shipbuilding industry in Scotland, and the recession in 2008.

By developing a Children’s Neighbourhood in Clydebank, we hope – by working in partnership with other local organisations – to alleviate the impacts of these shifts. We want to respond to the views of children and young people who live in the area.

There are four local schools in the area: Kilbowie PS, St. Eunan’s PS, St. Peter the Apostle HS, and Clydebank HS. The CNS team will soon be building relationships with these schools, before embarking on new collaborative projects with pupils.

As well as this, we’ll also be working alongside other local services, projects and groups in the wider community.

What’s going on in Clydebank right now?

Our brand new local coordinator, Victoria, is now working in the Radnor Park area of Clydebank. Victoria will soon be collaborating with local organisations, before investigating what’s currently on offer for children and young people – and what changes they’d like to see.

Victoria will also be working alongside our research team. They’ll carry out focus groups and consultations with the local community. This will help us gain more profound insights into improving outcomes for children and young people in Clydebank.

We’d love to hear from you!

Our aim is help find ways for local people, partners and services to work together, so we’d love to hear from you!
