Sparcs provides activities and play opportunities for children aged 4-12 years living in the South East of Glasgow. Its aim is to achieve a safer, healthier and better community experience through our activities for those who participate and the wider community we live in.
SEIN funding went towards the costs of running weekly kids’ clubs in Toryglen and the Gorbals.
“We have helped the children with problem solving and supported them in the choices they have had to make. We have discussed a range of topics including bullying, bereavement and isolation and offered an open door policy for the parents/carers to discuss any concerns they may have. We have worked very closely with a number of families who have experienced a range of issues which have had a huge impact on their families ranging from difficulties with relationships, health & benefit sanctions.”
