GBCT emerged 18 years ago as a grassroots campaign to return Govanhill Baths to community ownership as a vital community asset. Today, it is a high-profile anchor organisation with effective local partnerships and a commitment to transforming our community for the benefit of local people. GBCT is recognised as an example of what can be achieved through community participation and a governance that underlines the importance of connecting national and local social policy agendas The ethos of the GBCT has always been, ‘Run for the community, by the community’.
Currently GBCT runs four key programmes, one of which is the award-winning social enterprise, Rags to Riches, Scotland’s leading upcycling enterprise aimed at creating employment, training and volunteering opportunities through environmental/regeneration projects. Find out more here.
