Thriving Govanhill funding awards announced

After an intense public vote, we are delighted to announce the results of the Thriving Govanhill funding awards! Ten local projects are receiving £2500 Action Grants, with another ten receiving £1000 Kickstart Grants. The projects span a broad array of health and wellbeing activity, from ‘soundbaths’ in care home through community gardening, cycling, music projects, arts activities, youth activity and support for Womens’s groups.

The awards also mark a triumph for local democracy and participation, with over 400 local residents casting their votes. We’re delighted that so many have taken part in decision making around how local funding should be targetted.

We are hoping and expecting that there will be a future round of the Thriving Govanhill Fund. Watch this space! In the meantime, thanks to all who have taken part in the voting and congratulations and good luck to the grant recipients in delivering their projects!

Kickstart Awards – £1000 each
