We are delighted to announce that we will be opening a hub in Clydebank on Monday the 9th of April 2018! This new venture signals our first foray outside of Glasgow, into neighbouring West Dunbartonshire, and shows the continued growth of Street Connect as we seek to offer hope and opportunity of improvement to the disadvantaged and marginalised in society. 


Our Clydebank Hub is in partnership with Park Christian Fellowship (PCF). The hub will be led by Craig Halkett and based at PCFs church building, located at 19 Shelley Drive, Clydebank G81 3EL. In September 2007 Craig and PCF started working in partnership with Teen Challenge Strathclyde, using one of their Coffee Bar buses to reach out to the most vulnerable in the Clydebank Community. The bus has been parked in several areas within Clydebank over the years offering help, advice and hope to those trapped in hopelessness & despair. As a follow up to the outreach bus, PCF also run Café Hope once a month on a Sunday evening, as an outreach event to those with various life controlling issues.


We are looking to establish Street Connect in Clydebank one day a week (and hopefully more in time), offering 1-2-1 and Group support as well as outreach into the local community and surrounding area. We hope to build a small team of dedicated volunteers, aiming to grow and develop the work through time.

 

The group will run from 12.30 to 15.00 every Monday: 12.30 to 13.00 we will serve tea/coffee and sandwiches, with the group starting at 13.00. The group will be run in 2 x 45min sessions with a 15min break. Follow-up 1:1 support will be given, and we look forward to working in partnership with PCF impacting the community of Clydebank.
