Hillwalking initiative The Climb Up was awarded the most grant funding.

A prominent ng homes regeneration initiative involving young people in North Glasgow has been profiled on a leading regeneration forum.

The Your Choice, Young Voice project put decision making power into the hands of 37 local young people from Springburn Academy and various youth groups, as they dreamed up new initiatives to support local young people. These included sports clubs, social clubs and a popular hill walking club. Following the shortlisting and then voting on of the projects by local people, certain projects were awarded grant funding which will bring them to life.

The initiative was made possible by the Scottish Government Community Choices fund, the dedication of ng homes staff, the partnership of Space Unlimited and the creativity of the children.

Robert Docherty lead the project and produced the short feature for SURF which is available to read here:

ng homes are delighted with the impact of the Your Voice, Young Choice project and we are excited to see the impact of the initiatives created by the young people of the North Glasgow community.
