good is a welcoming charity and social enterprise hub in the heart of Glasgow city centre. Run by the child and youth care charity Kibble, the space can be used by third sector organisations for meetings, events, seminars and workshops for free.
What’s the catch you ask? Quite simply… there isn’t one! The purpose of good is to provide a melting pot of ideas, stories and activities that spread the word on all of the amazing projects charities and social enterprises are leading on to support people in our communities.
The vibrant space provides information on Kibble’s services including The Experience – Scotland’s largest electric Go Karting arena and social enterprise helping young people into employment. In addition, you can find out more about becoming a foster carer with Kibble, and also our upcycled bikes and furniture at KibbleWorks. As well as showcasing Kibble’s work, the space also provides a backdrop for other charities and social enterprises to promote their own services. We run a weekly programme of events, so far this has included; art displays by those overcoming drug and alcohol addiction, the sale of ‘Empowerment Pants’ to support women suffering from self-esteem issues, and we’ve also welcomed the CAMHS North Glasgow service for their team away-day. If you’re a charity or social enterprise we have a great, flexible space to meet your organisation’s needs.
Kibble is one of Scotland’s leading child and youth care charities providing specialist services to young people at risk. This includes education, fostering, residential and secure care, community housing services and employability skills and employment. By introducing good, we aim to change perceptions of young people in care, whilst leveraging the charitable and social enterprise community in Scotland.
good is a new exciting, vibrant and comfortable space where everyone is welcome. So, come along and start your good story now.
