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.
We may not be able to offer you a cup of tea, but we are so glad you’ve popped by our website, 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, Glasgow. Come on in and make yourself at home:-) 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!” 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.
