We have a new home!
When the Independent Resource Centre contacted us and asked us to take over their premises when they closed we were truly humbled that they had thought of us.
Opening our Big Disability Hub at 627 Dumbarton Road is a huge move for us but it means that we will be able to offer so much more for people with disabilities and our community.
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks with the renovations of the property. None of which could have been possible without some amazing people.
We would like to thank local artist Owen McGuigan for donating all the artwork for the building, EDesign Clydebank for the window lettering, Zeroseven Graphics for the sign, EF Electrical for electrical work, Men Shed for helping us to widen doorways for better access, B&Q, Drumchapel for donations of materials, Joe Walker's Flooring for the very generous discount on our new carpets and a great job done by the carpet fitters and the 1740 Clydebank Squadron Air Cadets for use of their car park on the opening day.
We’ve been doing our best to make the premises as accessible as we can and a special thank you goes out to Jackie Maceira and Clyde Shopmobility for providing us with a removable ramp.
Our opening day was made extra special by the attendance of special guests Councillor Jim McElhill, Councillor June McKay, Tracey Wightwick from The National Lottery and MSP Marie McNair who cut the ribbon and declared us officially open.
An extra special shout out goes to our fantastic board, staff and volunteers especially Willie, George, Tam, Angela, Selina, Billy, Derek, Robert, Nicola, John, Kathleen, Dhyani, Jacqueline and Isla who all worked tirelessly for weeks to make sure that the place was looking great and all set up for the big day.
And of course all the hard work was headed up by our founder and Charity Coordinator Kevin Crawford.
Our New Address

The Big Disability Hub
We are creating a safe and informative space for people with disabilities, their carers and supporters as well as groups and organisations to come together, find the help they need, support each other and make a difference.
