Three public-social partnership projects in Glasgow have been awarded over £1m from the Scottish Government’s Early Years Change Fund. The money will help Scottish charities to work with councils to support families in need of extra assistance. The three successful projects are:
- Glasgow City Council and Children 1st – £350,000 to help families who are just coping including outreach home support, play work and parenting group sessions.
- Glasgow City Council, Scottish Refugee Council, NHS Glasgow and Money Matters – £365,000 to help break the cycles of inequality, poor outcomes and poverty in asylum seeker and refugee children by assigning a single worker to vulnerable families.
- Glasgow City Council and Action for Children – £450,000 for the Intensive Family Support Services and Family, Health and Well-being Services in North Glasgow.
Twenty projects across Scotland received awards to develop support services that will help to improve outcomes for some of our most vulnerable children and their families.
A PSP involves public and third sector bodies co-designing services or interventions to deliver agreed social outcomes.
