The Gowanbank Hub is a Charity in Scotland founded in February 2021. We were officially incorporated in April 2021 as a community interest company and achieved charitable status in September 2021. We are a non-profit organization operated by a Board of trustees to help vulnerable people and families across Glasgow.

We work quickly, effectively, and efficiently to support our service users.  Our approach is to be aware, focus, and act only in the best interest of our service users.

We support vulnerable people and families across South West Glasgow by working alongside partners and supporting people who need our help.
