Normal service details...

The members programme is about supporting people through transitions in their lives and reconnecting disengaged people. This is the ethos that underpins all the elements of what we do, from cooking to social integration, work opportunities to social contact, advice to arts. We are committed to meeting individuals, welcoming them and supporting them wherever they are on their journey. We are aimed at vulnerable people however we also open the doors to anyone so we enjoy a truly rich, diverse and supportive community!

We offer a mixture of education programmes, drop-in services, social enterprise and social integration activities.

Free lunches are served to members of the project (participants in this programme who register with us).

To become a member and access this FREE programme ask at reception for a form or complete the form online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GCPRegistration20.

Guitar Class...

This class will cover all aspects of the acousc guitar and will allow members to learn basic skills. No need to bring a guitar but if you have one that always helps more people join in.

Facilitated by Thomas - Elsie Inglis Room

After two weeks - this is a closed group for the term.
