About BCLC

Vision has been turned into reality when the Bridgeton Community Learning Campus was officially opened by The Leader of the Council, Councillor Steven Purcell on 18th August 2006. Frank McAveety, MSP, and George Redmond, Glasgow City Councillor, were also on hand.

This project is an exciting and dynamic community initiative which has developed through a determination and a commitment from the local community realising the potential to achieve more for their area. Building on work already done by local community groups, organisations and agencies were brought on board to work alongside and in partnership with the community to pull resources and knowledge and build the dream of the Learning Campus. Working together are FAB, the Bridgeton Community Centre, John Wheatley College, Glasgow East Regeneration Agency, Glasgow City Council, Greater Glasgow NHS Heath Board and Thenew Housing Association.

Funding totaling £1.7m has been received from the Social Inclusion Partnership, Glasgow City Council, European Regional Development Fund, The Big Lottery, GGNHS Health Board and Communities Scotland.

The Bridgeton Community Learning Campus is an exciting development which has an immeasurable impact on the overall regeneration of Bridgeton and the East End by providing a joined-up approach to improving Service-Provision.

Alan Kennedy, the Chair of the Campus and a local Bridgeton Resident, highlights the appeal of the Campus for local people. “The Campus is run by local people, listening to local people and for local people. It provides training opportunities right on people’s doorsteps in a friendly open setting rather than in an official College environment and provides a community facility where local people can get together and be involved in the services that they choose.” It is well worth watching therefore, the progress of The Bridgeton Community Learning Campus as it begins to take shape and develops into what is potentially an exciting and unique example of what can be achieved with true and effective partnership working and community involvement.
