A new year and a new programme - we have lots of fun activities for 2017! Alongside our regular sessions and services we're particularly excited to be working with the Young Women's Movement to run the Empowering Pathways course for the first time, to bring back our popular John Muir Award Family Group activities and, after a very successful pilot, to introduce Blairdardie Heroes, a fun series of craft-based workshops focused on books
April, Dan and Phillipa Went all competed in the 5K Glasgow Santa Dash 2016, raising a fantastic £225 for 3D! Dan and Phillipa clocked in at an impressive buggy-pushing 34 minutes, while April did even better, achieving a post-pregnancy personal best time of 32 minutes and 5 seconds.
Well done for doing so well, and a massive thank you from everyone here at the project, we all really appreciate the work you put in!
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!
