What is Thriving Places?

Thriving Places was introduced in Govan in 2017.  It is a ten-year commitment from
Glasgow Community Planning Partnership (CPP) with the aim of helping to improve
the quality of life of people who live and work in Govan, along with another 9 areas in

Each area has its own unique and complex needs and strengths, and a guiding principle
of Thriving places is taking an individual, community-tailored approach to how community
groups, services and organisations work together to address local priorities.

Through discussions and consultations within the community, a number of local priorities
emerged for Govan. These have formed the basis for the working groups listed below,
which are made up of organisations, groups,  statutory services, and community members.

  • Food For Good 
  • Arts, Heritage and Wellbeing
  • Learning for Life and Work
  • Children & Families
  • Young People 
  • Positive Communities 

Further information about these groups, and more general information about Thriving Places
will be made available in coming months, including information about further opportunities for
people who live and work in Govan to get involved, and have their say about how Thriving Places
Govan can best serve their community.

Please note that Thriving Places is not a CGAP/ THI project. If you have any specific questions,
