A reminder that our AGM is taking place on Tuesday 28th January at our Albany Centre from 9am – 12.30pm. Due to recent changes to the Glasgow Community Fund process and timeline following a meeting of Glasgow City Council today. There will be significant implications for voluntary organisations in the city and we have taken the decision to make space on the agenda at our AGM to let Bernadette Monaghan, Director of Community Empowerment in Glasgow City Council, come and speak to the sector about these changes and the effect they will have.

To do this we will need to rearrange our previously planned Challenging Poverty in Glasgow session to a later date. This is a difficult choice because poverty in the city is such a key issue – but we believe that the urgency of the Glasgow Community Fund changes warrants postponing the poverty event.
