The Gathering 2015

Published: February 26, 2015



Representatives of C-Change Scotland & dates-n-mates attended the two day Gathering event 2015 on the 25th and 26th of February held at Glasgow’s SECC.

This event was organised and run by The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) and is Scotland’s largest event for charities, social enterprisers & voluntary organisations.

We met so many wonderful people who came to chat to us at our event stall. We are very happy to say there was a huge interest in what we do – our reputation for delivering high quality person centred support as well as our various projects.

There was particular interest in our dating and friendship agency project dates-n-mates and our club night LATE.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to talk to us.

dates-n-mates Funding Success!

Published: February 5, 2015


Great news! We recently applied to Glasgow City Council for an ‘Integrated Care Grant’ for our dates-n-mates project and are delighted to say that the project has been awarded £39,000 over three years.

The money will ensure that we can continue to tackle loneliness and social isolation by supporting the development of friendships and relationships in the Glasgow area.

A big thank you to Glasgow City Council; we will ensure the money is very well spent!
