STUDENTS who participated in the Activate course with ng homes received their awards at a ceremony at Glasgow University recently alongside students from other parts of the city.

Activate Tutor, Karen McNiven said: “It has been a pleasure to deliver the Activate course in North Glasgow. The diversity of the group with people from such varied backgrounds and ethnicity makes it an excellent opportunity for local people to learn more about discrimination and diversity. The group had such a wide variety of skills and knowledge to share with each other.

This coupled with their own life experiences made it such a pleasure to work with the group. It was an excellent bunch of people who I am sure will go on to do more wonderful work in their communities”

Those who completed the programme included local parents and volunteers, ng homes staff and members of a variety of organisations including, Scottish Asylum Seekers Residents Association, Bridges programme and ng green Champions. The course was a big hit with all who attended.

A couple of the comments from local people were: “It made me feel I could do something in my community” and “it was great working with people from different cultural backgrounds”.

ng homes board member Baillie Allan Stewart attended the event and said: “It was magnificent to see so many local people attending the university to collect their certificates. Activate is certainly a popular course and it’s great for people working in their communities.”

Another Activate course will be starting soon and Information events will be held in Saracen House on 24th March at 1.30pm – 2.30pm and 5.00pm – 6.30pm
