3D Drumchapel has amended the delivery programme, separating our activities into Universal and Targeted services. As a not-for-profit charity organisation, there continues to be no cost attached to any of our services, which remain free at the point of use for all service users.
3D Drumchapel operates within geographical boundaries and our services are available to families who reside in the Drumchapel, Knightswood or Yoker area. Services are for families from pre-birth to early secondary school.
