Maryhill Integration Network (MIN) SCIO was established in 2001 and became a registered charity (SC037300) in March 2006. We are a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation . We have a voluntary Board of Trustees.
MIN brings refugee, migrant and local communities together through, art, social, cultural and educational groups and projects, offering people a chance to learn new skills, meet new people, share experiences and take part in worthwhile activities to improve their lives and the life of their communities.
Our Vision, Mission and Core Values
Vision – MIN’s Vision is for an inclusive society where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and can live supported and connected lives.
Mission – MIN’s Mission is to create a unique and creative environment in which communities can come together to share experiences and demonstrate the value of cultural diversity in Scotland.
We encourage everyone to feel safe, forge friendships and make social and
supportive connections across the community, helping to rebuild lives and
create a neutral, welcoming place for all.
We believe in universal human rights and treat everyone on an individual basis,
and with dignity; we strive for “acceptance without judgement” [service user quote].
We understand the negative impact of inequality and social exclusion in our
society, and aim to reduce barriers to equality and make Scotland a fairer place.
We support participation in the development of our services with the aim to
reflect the diversity of all involved.
We promote awareness of rights and entitlements, supporting ambitions
to live autonomously, providing access to advice, support, personal
development opportunities and a collective voice within the community.
We celebrate the use of arts and culture as a means of expression, challenging
stereotypes and negative media coverage, in order to create authentic narratives
which value contributions made by all in our community.
