Action for Children

Maryhill Housing currently works in partnership with Action for Children to deliver work experience projects in our local communities. The programme provides an opportunity for young unemployed people to learn new employability skills and gain new experiences. This, in turn, helps them secure further employment, training and education opportunities. The programme normally lasts 6 weeks and those taking part undertake a range of work from painting to environmental improvements.

Examples of past projects include the Lochburn and Eastpark area. The next project will take place in the area surrounding the Mini Multi Community Garden and Growing Space close to Shiskine Drive and Sandbank Street.
