Improving Lives & Communities 

Community Regeneration Team

Thenue Housing has always gone beyond our core housing. We recognise that adopting a holistic approach to regenerating communities through community regeneration activities not only builds safe, strong and sustainable communities but also has a positive impact on core business activity such as housing management and maintenance.

 

We know that many of our customers are facing increasing challenges such as welfare reform, securing employment, living in the digital age, lack of opportunities and health inequality.

 

What is required is local action to tackle area inequality, create opportunities and improve communities. Our activity will focus on outcomes and put communities first, involving local residents and empowering communities to take action themselves.

 

Area Associations

We believe that regenerating communities can only work and be sustainable with the active involvement of the people who live there. We work closely with local residents in identifying local priorities and in developing ways of tackling local issues.

 

We work with 3 local Area Associations and have formal agreements with the 3 groups:-

  • Bridgeton & Dalmarnock Area Association
  • Cranhill Area Association
  • Netherholm Area Association

The centre is a hub for social and learning activities. Most of our services are delivered by local groups and organisations however we also run our own projects when we access funding. Current programmes include the ‘Click and Connect’ I.T suite, Personal Development courses for Women and we are about to launch our children’s digital art project to be run until March 2019.

Green Volunteers

Our Green Volunteers have been working on residents gardens in Calton for the past two years. We work with local groups and Community Safety Glasgow to carry out community clean ups. We operate from Elcho Gardens, Calton where we have a storage container, mini orchard, raised beds and a cargo container made into a training space.

 

Our volunteers are both local people and folk referred to us by Community Safety Glasgow’s Recreate programme where ex-offenders are supported to volunteer in their communities.  

 

Our focus has always been about supporting people in our communities as well as improving the local environment.  We aim to provide opportunities for local people to get involved in looking after their community whilst building relationships with us and each other so that they are less isolated and more connected to others in their community.
