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 therefore you are welcome to drop in to our office from 10am-5pm Monday to Friday for more information or advice.
