Annexe Communities - Greater Glasgow & Clyde Valley

Established 2001

The group has undertaken major capital repairs to the Annexe Healthy Living Centre over the years and would eventually like to explore taking full ownership of the building from Glasgow City Council. The centre houses a thriving café; offers a range of classes and activities such as art & design workshops, exercise classes, stress management classes and cookery workshops; runs a mothers & toddlers group, a project to address issues of isolation in older people and various day trip for local residents. It previously ran a youth project focused around fashion & design which spawned a new social enterprise. Membership of the group currently stands at over 250 with 35 active volunteers, 9 voluntary directors, 10 members of staff and 15 tutors.

More recently Annexe Communities forged a partnership with another local voluntary health organisation and was successful in securing a four year NHS contract to develop and deliver community health activities across designated neighbourhoods in NE and NW Glasgow. The main focus of the contract is community capacity building in Glasgow's most disadvantaged communities. This contract evolved from an earlier NHS service level agreement which delivered healthy living initiatives in four outreach neighbourhoods in west Glasgow.
