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.
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.
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.
