Welcome to the Govanhill community information site

Welcome to Govanhill! Our community is a vibrant neighbourhood home to about 18,000 people and one mile south of the city centre of Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city. Govanhill is Scotland's most ethnically diverse community with many cultures, nations and faiths represented. It has a 150 year history which mirrors that of Scotland and the world at large as industries have come and gone, people have migrated and communities have been impacted by changing policies.

This site provides information about Govanhill including news, events and how you can get involved in the local community. It also contains data about the area, details of organisations doing work locally and information about key aspects of living in Govanhill.

This site will be amended and added to continuously from Summer 2017 onwards. We will soon be adding a photo gallery, research and data archive and some stories about Govanhill. If you find any errors or glitches, please let us know! We also welcome submissions from the community about the neighbourhood. Get in touch with us via the site if you have anything you would like to submit or see here.

The Govanhill Community Information website has been developed and managed by Govanhill Community Development Trust with input from a steering group of lovely local residents. The website was initially funded by the Scottish Government.
