The Projects Team is an important part of the support offered at Street Connect. The group gives participants the opportunity to gain new skills for employment. Over time the Team have gained practical skills like painting and decorating, gardening and, as you can see from the video, some of the team have been building fencing as well.
The group not only provides practical experience to participants but allows people to grow in confidence, develop reading and writing skills and many of the group have received Community Achievement Awards from Glasgow Kelvin College. The partnership with the college means a great deal to us and has opened up opportunities for the Team to progress through the different levels of the Community Achievement Award.
