Part of SURF’s ‘Reality, Resources, Resilience’ collaborative programme

The aim of this participative SURF event was to present some key messages from two differing case study areas – east Govan in Glasgow and the Gallatown neighbourhood in Kirkcaldy. Cross-sector participants were invited to discuss similarities and differences in their own experiences across Scotland to help SURF identify the core issues for further exploration.

This seminar is part of a ‘Reality, Resources, Resilience’ collaborative programme being delivered by SURF in partnership with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and supported by the Scottish Government.

SURF is particularly grateful to the following case study participants for their formal seminar input:

Karen McGregor, Chair, Gallatown and East Sinclair Tenants & Residents Association
Alice Connelly, Member, South West Glasgow Community Reference Group
Cheryl McFadyen, Headteacher, Ibrox Primary School
Heather Young, Senior Health Promotion Officer, NHS Fife
