Introduction

The GCRP Renfrewshire project is funded by the Scottish Government. Diversity and the size of minority communities have increased within Renfrewshire; therefore there has been a greater need for support services. GCRP will help to develop opportunities for minority communities in Renfrewshire to engage with local services and with local communities. Furthermore the project will help towards breaking down barriers, such as barriers to employment. GCRP has gathered significant evidence that support is not only needed to address the concerns of the communities but to empower these communities to set up their own representative structures. The project has been funded since 2017 and will be funded till 2020.
