Integration networks were originally set up between 2000-2003 to support refugees and asylum seekers who were being accommodated in Glasgow. Four of these were in the south east of Glasgow.
Over the years, changes to the communities that they supported and to the funding environment led to these 4 networks coming together – in January 2013 the South East Integration Network (SEIN) was formed & became Scotland’s 500th Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).
Our membership is made up of local voluntary organisations, community groups, statutory agencies and individual members.
Our members provide local residents from all backgrounds, countries and cultures access to a variety of information, services, training and activities to fulfil our vision for an integrated community in the south east of Glasgow.
As a network, we create the opportunity for our members to connect & work together and support what they do. We do this by sharing information; advocating on their behalf; providing access to training opportunities; organising events; offering funding for projects and acting as a hub for integration work in the south east of Glasgow.
Our work is funded by Glasgow City Council’s Integrated Grants Fund.
