The Only Way Is Up! Ardenglen HA receives Lottery Funding

Ardenglen HA recives Lottery Funding for The Only Way Is Up project


Posted In

Castlemilk has been handed a massive Big Lottery cash boost to make a difference to people’s lives. 

Now a pioneering community project which offers a helping hand to local people can continue for another three years thanks to a grant of £145,740.

The TOWIU project – which stands for The Only Way Is Up - has been a runaway success and was created by Ardenglen Housing Association.

It offers a range of free activities from gardening to cookery, IT help, get-together groups for men and women, first aid sessions and even a sewing group – all aimed at building people’s confidence and giving them new skills.

It also offers help in finding a job, literacy support and tuition in learning English as a second language.

Ardenglen HA is 100 per cent committed to helping the community and hailed the news as a real boost for Castlemilk.

Ardenglen Chief Executive Audrey Simpson said:

“This is great news for our community. Keeping our TOWIU project going is a crucial part of our regeneration work within Castlemilk and many people rely on it.”
