SSF Glasgow Team Update June 2023

As we enter the new financial year, SSF programmes have been relaunching across the city, with our team working hard to ensure our staff and young people get the best experience of being with SSF.

Our amazing work is only possible with the help of our partners, offering a varying degree of support across all our programmes.

East End

In the East End, we deliver a Friday night Shell Twilight session in partnership with PEEK in Dalmarnock. This partnership offers a range of expertise and support to our staff, as well as doing street work together to get more young people involved in the session.


In Barrowfield we are working with the West of Scotland Housing Association, who run the community centre in the heart of Barrowfield. This partnership, with support from Thriving Places, allows us to deliver our weekly Shell Twilight sessions for Young People, and allow them to access the community centre and develop their own relationships with staff and other people from their community.


In Govan, we work closely with Govan Youth Information Project (GYIP) to deliver our Active:2:Grow and SSF Chance:2:Be programmes. The staff have a strong relationship with the young people, and often our young people have previously worked with them or end up attending GYIP sessions in Govan as a result of the programme. This partnership allows us to give our young people as many opportunities as possible.

Recently we were thrilled to be asked to support GYIP with their Govan Fair Cup, an annual football tournament for local primary school children across Govan to come together for a fun day of football, activities, and celebration of the amazing young people. This year, for the first time ever, there was also a girls tournament hosted alongside the boys, highlighting how GYIP provides opportunities for all.

“The event was brilliant, it was great to see all these young girls and boys come together for a fantastic event at an amazing facility. We were also lucky enough to meet the team from Wheatley Group, who sponsored the event and two of the Glasgow City team who recently won the SWPL, who were generous enough to bring along the trophy for the Young People to see – you can’t be what you can’t see!”

“It was an absolute pleasure to have our friends from SSF supporting us at 2023's Govan Fair Cup. With the added games and activities the young people were able to stay active throughout the day as well as give them an opportunity to mingle with other schools. The Glasgow team at SSF are easily the best partnership GYIP's ever had and that's why we love them to be at every event we have as we feel they add something special to them all. Thanks again for all your support.”

Without all of our partners across the city, SSF wouldn’t be able to provide the high-quality delivery across all of our programmes, a massive thank you to each and every one of them.
