The Well, Multi-Cultural Resource Centre (The Well) serves the diverse ethnic minority communities in Govanhill and surrounding areas, by providing information and advice in a culturally sensitive manner – through one-to-one relational support, we make a long term difference in people’s lives.

Our aims include:

Overcoming disadvantage

Poverty, poor English skills, racism and simply not knowing how things work in the UK are some of the disadvantages our services seek to overcome.

Reducing social deprivation

Social deprivation and isolation are common problems, particularly among ethnic minority women. Our services build much needed social networks for people.

Community integration

Govanhill is a melting pot of over 50 nationalities. The Well encourages integration, bringing people from different backgrounds together to have common needs met.

The vast majority of people come for help of one form or another, but many also come simply for a chat or to read the newspaper.  All are offered a cup of tea, all are treated with respect.

We may not be able to offer you a cup of tea, but we are so glad you’ve popped by our web site, and hope you will take the time to explore just a bit more about the amazing work of The Well, Multi-Cultural Resource Centre in Albert Road in Glasgow. Come on in and make yourself at home:-) Thanks for visiting us, and if you have any questions, then please do get in touch; as we say to our centre users: “If we can’t help you, we’ll find someone who can!”
