Thanks to a funding award from the Heritage Lottery Fund Shettleston residents have the chance to take part in a new project that will celebrate the history and heritage of their community.
‘Walking Back to the Future’ will bring the community together to develop a heritage trail that charts Shettleston’s past and celebrates the resilience of its residents, past and present. The trail will take people on a walk through Shettleston, highlighting landmarks and buildings of historical interest via an accompanying leaflet or smart phone app. The project is the brainchild of Fuse Youth Café and Shettleston Housing Association who believe it will be a lasting legacy of 2014 and the Commonwealth Games taking place nearby.
As you will be aware, Shettleston Housing Association have been carrying out an external wall render project in the Steel Estate since January 2013 funded by both the Scottish Government’s HEEPs funding and the large energy companies (ECO) funding.
Welfare reform is one of the most talked about issues of today and quite rightly; the changes being made by the UK government represent the biggest reform of the system since its introduction in the 1940s. The impact of welfare reform on communities like ours will be considerable, with the ‘bedroom tax’ introduced in April this year just the first of many challenges ahead for both tenants and the Association.
The Association has recently introduced an ‘Unacceptable actions policy’ to address matters in relation to unacceptable actions, which unfortunately have been displayed by some of our customers on occasion. The policy informs customers on how the Association will manage unacceptable behaviour whether this is in person, on the telephone or in writing.
