About Us

MIN Staff, Volunteers & Service Users in the Many Hands Community Garden

MIN works in partnership to develop projects and services that meet the needs of the local community. These aim to build bonds and links within and between communities to encourage cross-cultural understanding and celebrate diversity.

MIN understands that integration is not possible by working with only a particular group within the community and so encourages participation from people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities living within Greater Maryhill, the North West area of Glasgow and beyond.

MIN has an Open Door Policy so you are welcome to drop in to our office from 10am-5pm Monday to Friday for more information or advice.

Our Weekly Activities Include:

ESOL Classes
Dance and Theatre Production Project
Women’s Group
Men’s Group
Community Choir
Garden Club
(for full details please go to Weekly Programme )

The Network also organises a number of community social events throughout the year to coincide with national events such as:
International Women’s Day
Refugee Week
Black History Month
16 Days of Action to Eliminate Violence Against Women
(for details of current events please go our Upcoming Events)

Disclaimer: MIN is an independent organisation that is not affiliated to any political or religious groups. It is open to all regardless of background. Any information provided to MIN will be treated in confidence and only used for the purposes for which it was provided.

  1. Hi Angela

    Thanks for getting in touch, sorry for the delay in replying! The Music and Theatre Production group works with a professional choreographer, dancers and musicians on creating performance dance pieces that are then performed at various event and venues throughout the year including the Go Dance Festival, Refugee Week at the Tron Theatre and Black History Month/Document Film Festival at the CCA. You would be more than welcome to just come along and join in. The group meets on Wednesdays in Maryhill at mIN’s premises from 6-8pm and on Thursdays at Garnethill Multicultural Centre at the same time, however if you are planning on attending in the next couple of weeks there have been some changes to venue for rehearsals so please contact mIN for more details.
    Kind regards

  2. Hi Caz
    Thank you for your enquiry and your positive comments about MIN, we are glad we have inspired you! I have forwarded your comment to our Development Co-ordinator for her attention regarding any possibilities of working with you. We do not have any week long festivals that we hold ourselves, however you may be interested in visiting during June when the Refugee Festival runs, as there are many events both at MIN and across Glasgow at that time. We are not aware of any organisations such as ours in Ireland but you could try contacting the Irish Refugee Council who may be able to give you information on any organisations working with refugees in the Cork area.
    Kind regards

    Thank you for contacting us. MIN runs a variety of community groups and projects that aim to provide social and learning activities to help people, particularly from asylum seeker, refugee and migrant backgrounds, to get to know their local community, make friends and learn new skills. We also provide advice and support on welfare, housing, immigration and where to go for other services that you may need. If you would like to join any of activities you can find more information about when and where they are on on the Weekly Programme page. Volunteering roles can range from helping out with groups and activities to assisting us in the office and volunteers gain new skills and experience that can help when looking for work, applying for college etc. The skills and experience needed depends on the volunteer role.
