The Pockets and Prospects Project is funded by the Scottish Government via Scottish Community Alliance’s Community Capacity and Resilience Fund.
Recognising the value in connecting with Glasgow’s Campaign to End Loneliness (Scottish pilot of the UK Campaign) and ensuring we met the fund criteria, we partnered with Glasgow SEN to develop this work.
Senscot and GSEN worked with SEN members to coordinate a ‘programme of activities’ which was then made available for community anchor organisations to purchase and offer to their local community. This developed in to a ‘pick and mix’ programme offers a diverse range of activities such as language classes, physical activity, upcycling workshops, daytime discos, and more.
The project provided an opportunity for social enterprises to develop a collaborative approach to tackling loneliness and social isolation and to mitigate the impact of welfare reform.
