Of the poorest areas identified in the Scottish Indices of Multiple Deprivation, over two thirds are to be found concentrated in Glasgow. Both national and local government acknowledges the important contribution Faith Communities are making in the poorest communities.

We support and work locally with faith communities to tackle poverty and make a difference in the poorest parts of Glasgow and the Central Belt.

The work of the Community Development Team is co-funded by Faith Groups, Glasgow City Council  through the Community Planning Partnership and other stakeholders.
