Parkhead Hub: Community Benefits

A partnership group meets regularly to plan, implement and coordinate wide-ranging community initiatives over the Hub’s construction phase and beyond. It includes Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP), Hub West Scotland, BAM Construction and community representation.

There are three priority groups:

  • care experienced individuals
  • rehabilitating offenders and people recovering from addictions
  • pupils from Whitehill and St Andrew's Secondary Schools.

 
The community initiatives are: 

  • an education programme with a work-based learning programme for secondary pupils, moving them on to a foundation apprenticeship programme
  • a construction work academy that runs in association with local partners to provide access to training and work placements for individuals requiring support with employability skills in the local area
  • a wellbeing programme that supports staff on the construction site with their health and wellbeing
  • a community and volunteering programme that supports the local community through the delivery of the hub West Scotland Helping Hands initiative
  • an enterprise programme that supports local small to medium size enterprises (SMEs) to gain access to opportunities associated with construction work.

Updates are also provided through quarterly BAM newsletters:
