Completed Project

Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) was a collaborative project involving Glasgow Centre for Population Health, Policy Scotland, and the Robert Owen Centre at the University of Glasgow. It operated from 2018 to March 2022. 

In partnership with local public, private, and third sector organisations, CNS aimed to improve the involvement of children and young people in local decision-making and to ensure that efforts across services were co-ordinated for children and families in the communities in which they live.  

CNS adopted a holistic approach which was driven by the views and input of children, young people and their families, community members, and local professionals. 

A total of six CNS sites were established over the duration of the programme: Bridgeton and Dalmarnock, Castlemilk and Drumchapel in Glasgow city; Radnor Park in Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire; the rural community of Rigside; and the small town of Lanark in South Lanarkshire.
