Charity description

Kingsway Court Health & Wellbeing Centre logo
Kingsway Court is a complex of high rise flats in Scotstoun area of Glasgow. Kingsway Court & surrounding area is noted in the Scottish Index of Social Multiple deprivation as one of Scotland's most deprived zones. The area has suffered prolonged economic, social & physical deterioration. This legacy of disadvantage includes: low levels of educational attainment; concentration of 'hard core' poverty, low incomes & high unemployment; higher than average levels of drug use & crime. Glasgow Centre for population Health confirms that mental & physical illness & premature death rates are significantly above the national average. However, this is not completely hopeless situation. Underneath these terrible statistics lies a community of people full of spirit, personal pride and desire for a better quality of life.

Our vision, is one of a PROUD, CAPABLE, and CONFIDENT multi-cultural community. Our Mission is to build social capital within the community. That is, we believe increasing people's confidence, esteem, sense of connectedness and belonging is likely to be the most effective contribution our organisation can make to addressing health inequalities and improving health and wellbeing within the community. We aim to do this by generating resources and opportunities to improve people's chances of personal growth and fulfillment.
