Out of Hours
To enhance the existing CPP funded youth diversionary activity by providing a base for the friday out of hours service in the Summerston area aimed at engaging young people during peak drinking times. The indoor programme would be held in the Glasgow Club in John Paul Academy and would employ two new sessional staff. The programme would provide two hours of activities, in addition to the existing street work provision provided by the project. The project would work in partnership with Glasgow Life, John Paul Academy and Glasgow Rangers Club. Rangers will provide the cost of in kind coaches to support the out of hours services. The project has engaged with 84 young people and regularly supports up to 25 young people every Friday.
To provide for those most at risk young people with the opportunity to travel out with their local community and take part in diversionary activities. The project will cover Cadder, Wyndford and Summerston and is aimed at young people participating in alcohol, drugs misuse and violent behaviour within their own communities.

It is expected that up to 100 young people will take part.
