CHANGE: Childcare and Nurture, Glasgow East
CHANGE is a project (2016-2020) working to create better childcare for communities in the East of Glasgow.
We believe that good quality, flexible, affordable childcare services can help to mitigate the impacts of deprivation and build foundations and resilience that support children for life.
This project aims to develop and implement a sustainably funded approach to the delivery of services that focuses on family and the local area, working in partnership with the local community. Based on building relationships with families and services, CHANGE seeks to improve family wellbeing, increase access to and uptake of childcare places, and enhance opportunities for families.
The CHANGE project area is Calton & Bridgeton; Tollcross & West Shettleston; and Parkhead & Dalmarnock. It includes small parts of the Springboig & Barlanark neighbourhood, and Mount Vernon & East Shettleston.
We aim to create systemic change and will create and share our model so that it can be adapted and applied in other communities in Scotland.
The project team is drawing on existing assets of our partners and working with them to embed new expectations of what can be achieved.
