CHANGE: Childcare and Nurture, Glasgow East
CHANGE is a three-year project (2016-2019) project working to create better childcare for communities in the East of Glasgow.
For many communities in Scotland the provision of affordable, accessible early years, after-school and holiday care is particularly poor.
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.
The project has three main aims:
A total of 414 new registered childcare places will be created in neighbourhoods within the Shettleston and Calton areas of Glasgow for 0-12 year olds within a sustainable, long-term funding model.
Support children and families
An approach to childcare will be developed that builds relationships, engages with and supports children and families, working directly with more than 100 families.
Improve outcomes for children and families
The service will positively impact on a range of individual, family and community outcomes.
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.
