3D Drumchapel We are a charity based in Drumchapel in the West of Glasgow working with children and families providing a range of activities and support. Please note that our services are available to families in Drumchapel, Knightswood and Yoker.
3D Drumchapel, along with the Women's Movement, are delighted to announce that we will be offering the 12 week Empowering Pathways for Women Programme starting in January. It's designed to engage with local women to help strengthen women’s choices and participation in their communities and wider society. The aim of the programme is to provide safety, support and encouragement for women to strengthen their sense of belonging and worth, and choose positive pathways towards participation in all aspects of their lives. The programme is aim at:
- women on the margins because of poverty and the lack of associated opportunities
- women who are new to a community or country, perhaps seeking asylum, refugees, or migrants
- women experiencing prejudice and discrimination
- women affected by addictions, violence, mental illness, family breakdown and homelessness
- women who have missed out on education and who may want to brush up on basic skills
We will be hosting an information session on Wednesday 14th December, from 11.30am - 1pm. Please contact us to register an interest.

3D Drumchapel are proud to say that our volunteers won the 2016 Evening Times Community Champion Team Award!
After winning the North West region, we were invited to the awards ceremony at the City Chambers just pleased to be a part of the celebration of Glasgow's community activism. At a fantastic evening of boisterous fun - complete with impromptu conga line! - we came away with the award, much to everyone's delight. It's fantastic reward for everyone's hard work and commitment, and we're so pleased to see our volunteers' work recognised.
From supporting our sessions, cooking our family lunch, helping with creches, organising our clothing bank and much more, we absolutely could not do it without the huge amount of time, effort and energy of our wonderful volunteers - you are fantastic!
On Saturday our Summer 2016 Play on Pedals series came to a close, with everyone earning their certificates! It was great to see evidence of so much improvement in just six short weeks, with far fewer wobbles and a lot more confidence on display. Look forward to seeing you all freewheelin' around Drumchapel! Special congratulations to Kaci, Khloe, Scott, Layla-Jane, Dylan and Beth, who all earned their pedals in the form of a nifty Play on Pedals trophy, and thanks to Cycling Scotland and The Bike Station for all their help and support
