How we work

We successfully deliver a consistent and varied programme of creative group and individual supports to community members within Renfrewshire from our base in the North End of Paisley. All our work is robustly evaluated and monitored and feedback from community members, partners, volunteers and staff shape the development of everything we do. Our strong and dedicated team have a passion for the work of the Project and we believe this is fundamental to our continued success.

Underpinning our work is a commitment to:

  • Building genuine positive relationships
  • Being inclusive and accessible for all
  • Meeting people in their need, not just meeting their needs
  • Being realistic, optimistic and positive
  • Believing everyone has endless potential
  • Ensuring universal access
  • Working in a holistic and non-judgemental way
  • Empowering people to be in charge of their own life
  • Facilitating a safe space
  • Supporting people to see and seize opportunity
