CHANGE: Project partners
CHANGE worked with a range of local and national partners to help develop childcare in Glasgow East. Here you can read a little about the work that was carried out together.
Children in Scotland was the lead partner in CHANGE and provided the staff for the project team. Support was also provided from several other staff members from teams such as events, communications and participation and engagement.
Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) carries out research and supports new approaches to improve people’s health and reduce inequalities and shares its evidence and knowledge to influence change. In years 1-3 GCPH provided ongoing evaluation of the CHANGE project using data collected on current childcare provision in the area.
Glasgow City Council runs lots of nurseries and schools and is working to create more nursery places to make sure everyone who wants to can access their child’s free hours at nursery (also called national entitlement hours). As one of the original partners Glasgow City Council contributed to the project board.
Thriving Places is a Glasgow city-wide Community Planning Partnership initiative. CHANGE worked with the Parkhead, Dalmarnock and Camlachie area team to develop links between CHANGE and the local community.
The Scottish Out of School Care Network (SOSCN) is the national charitable infrastructure organisation representing Out of School Care in Scotland. One of its major roles is to shape policies, strategies and regulations at national and local levels. SOSCN was represented on the CHANGE project board.
