Community Links Scotland

Working with Forgewood Housing Co-op and Garrion People’s Housing Co-op, CLS staff accessed funding for a full time volunteer co-ordinator. In both cases the Co-operatives had built new offices and community centres in Motherwell and Wishaw respectively and the role of the volunteer co-ordinator was to work with and develop training for the two centre steering groups, in addition to other local individuals and community groups. As a result, both centres continue to flourish with a wide range of supported voluntary and community activities and services.
