We see a community free of isolation, free of low self-worth and free of

lack of opportunity for change. Together, we see a community full of

connection,of confidence and ready for change.

Motivated by our belief in God’s love for us, it is our mission to work in

the ML2 area to see people encouraged, empowered and engaged;

making a difference that matters in their community.

God’s love is the motivation of all we do; this is our foundational

value. If we only had one value it would just be love; this is primary.

We believe that God’s love is also just! “

"God always takes his stand unconditionally and

passionately… against the lofty and on behalf of the lowly;

against those who enjoy right and privilege and on behalf of

those who are denied and deprived of it.” (Barth)

LOVE is an encouragement to and from all who are with and

alongside us in Christian community, to walk in Unity and Love.

Believing in Difference

MADE4U believes in Kingdom Values; and

in this, the way God has us operate in

faith is often different to how the world

would have us operate. Change happens

by working ‘with’ people and ‘for’ people;

while we want to work alongside people,

often we are called to advocate for those

who don’t have a voice. True change in

our area will happen when we encourage

people to take ownership; of the project,

their lives and their community. This way,

we will encourage and champion change

in our community.


Our bottom line is that we believe that

there is hope for all regardless of their

oppression; mental health, physical

poverty, or isolation. This is hope which

spans both community and individuals.

We will identify potential in all we work

with, and in the community we are placed

in, searching out hope where it is

sometimes hidden. We will recognise and

build on assets in our community and in

those we work with, and also identify

needs and help people address them.


MADE4U is aiming to be a beacon of

Refuge and Safety. A core part of

becoming this in people’s lives is

listening to stories and acting, and

encouraging and equipping people to

act for themselves. We aim to offer

opportunities to those who most need

them. We support people who engage

with us to the best of our ability, but

know we are not called to do everything

ourselves, but to signpost people into

support structures and alongside others

who are also towers of refuge and who

can offer what is needed.


MADE4U believes in respecting and

celebrating everyone’s uniqueness and

will welcome all to its activities and

programmes. We believe that everyone

has a right to be valued, and a

responsibility to value others, we know

that people have a unique voice that will

resound in harmony with others around

it. Ultimately, it is our calling to accept

all; because we have, first, been

accepted by God.





During this period, our Project Manager, Clare McCormack

committed more hours to the project and moved to 31.5 hours per

week in order to coordinate the response to the pandemic. Susan

McLeary maintained our facilities until January 2021, at which point,

Jordan Douglas, who had been supporting in this role, stepped up to

take on the coordination of facilities and catering. Ellie Hallford

joined us late in the year to assist with admin under the CJS scheme.

David Taylor was invaluable in this financial year and quickly took

to building partnerships and supporting young people struggling

with the pandemic. He started with us on 28 hours per week but we

quickly realised the need and were able to increase his hours. Much

of our youth work was prohibited by lockdown measures, so David

was able to invest his time into supporting families and remote

youth projects.

Our children's work has moved from strength to strength under the

leadership of Adele Bryson, who also graduated with a degree in

Community Education during the year in question and with the

support of the Robertson Trust, we were able to offer increased hours

and stability for this role. The work was also supported by a

committed team of sessional workers, including Ronnie Jamieson,

Daniel Gordon, Susan McLeary, Amber Quammie, and Alex Taylor who

all assisted with Good Grub Club and remote children's work projects.

Given the focus of the year, ensuring response to wide-ranging

community needs during the covid pandemic was paramount. We

were fortunate that Matthew Evans, who had joined us in March 2020

had a great aptitude for coordination and support of people. His role

was then complemented by Allana Baird joining the team in May 2020

These two roles (25 and 17.5 hours respectively) were key in ensuring

we had a consistent response to people in need, developing

befriending, coordinating emergency food provisions and supporting

the welcome influx of volunteers. They were supported by Cameron

McManus who joined later in the year as wellbeing chef.

A special mention goes out to the great number of volunteers who supported the

work of MADE4U in the community during the first lockdown especially, with many

of those continuing to support in many ways in an ongoing basis.

In total, at the point of counting, we had partnered with over 70 local people during

the 12 months being reported on. These individuals came from all walks of life, with

many furloughed for a period and looking for ways to contribute. These included

police officers, councillors, teachers, business professionals, bus drivers and more. We

are particularly grateful for our partnership with Coltness High School where a

number of staff members were invited to support MADE4U when schools were


For a flavour of the types of roles these volunteers undertook, we have listed some

roles below:

Delivering 15,000 Community Response Team leaflets to all homes

in the ML2 postcode area

Collecting and delivering donations (hand sanitiser, bread,


Driving and assisting daily delivery of emergency food parcels,

shielding boxes, shopping and more

Spending time making befriending and check-in calls

Assisting local families with deliveries of Christmas presents,

Christmas and Scottish Event meals, Winter Fund Parcels and more

Dog walking, grass-cutting, prescription drop-offs and other

practical help

Going shopping for isolated, vulnerable and shielding individuals

Over the year we are reporting on,

children’s work has been a key element

for many children of the Wishaw area,

especially during the lockdown.

Reminding ourselves of our vision

which says: “We see a community free

of isolation,” Our mission and main

focus was to support and care for

children’s mental health, wellbeing and

development at this time. We adapted

some of our groups, like girls 'group, to

run over zoom so children were still

connecting with their friends and


We also launched local community

projects by partnering with primary

schools to keep children thinking

positively about their future. As you

will see in the pages to come, some of

our children’s projects made a

significant impact to many people of all

ages who were experiencing anxiety,

isolation, low confidence and


It was so inspiring to see the

encouragement from children aged 5-


10 staying positive and also sharing

their positivity and community spirit

by expressing this through art work

and creative writing, showing people

are not alone.

Children's Work Co-ordinator


During the first lockdown and due to

the isolation and disconnection which

came with it, families in the local area

were struggling with food poverty.

MADE4U responded to this need by

ensuring children had a place to get a

hot meal, so Good Grub Club was

launched. A free lunch was offered,

which helped families experiencing

disadvantage with children who were

finding it hard to get something to eat

during the day.

Good Grub Club built on the success of previous years' Club365 and learning

from that. Sessional workers believe that messy play sessions and science

experiments make a great difference; they encourage teamwork, confidence

and creative growth. In other craft sessions, the children came up with ideas

such as rocket ship junk modelling sessions, or a collaborative art project

where the community donated bottle caps and cardboard boxes. Each of the

four groups made something completely different from the same materials.

The activities carried out were inclusive for the kids, it didn’t matter if one is

struggling at home or another has a stable family life; they come together to

do the activity and are able to make new friends and experience new things.

There is no differing treatment, no stigma and no exclusion; this is what

MADE4U strives for; a community connected without judgment.


One parent, of two children with

learning difficulties, said: “I have

seen the boys come into

themselves. One of them was on a

microphone talking and praising

other kids. The other one was just

talking to everybody and involving

everybody. It brought their

confidence levels up a lot; the staff

really got them involved.”

The Christmas Toy Drive provided Christmas gifts to children of

families experiencing disadvantage aged between 0-16 years, who

were struggling during this period due to Covid. This project made a

significant difference to the lives of many children, to ensure they had

something to open on Christmas Day.

We offered a mixture of pre-loved and

new toys for all age groups. We covered

the whole ML2 area with a specific focus

on families within the top 5-10% most

deprived areas as identified by the SIMD

(Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation).

Donations came from a wide range of

local businesses including Pizza Hut,

Royal Bank of Scotland and The


We partnered with the PTA at Calderbridge Primary and other

members of the community offering donations to sponsor gifts. We

also received outstanding support from Coltness High; John McGilp

(Headteacher) and the cleaning and janitorial team. We received

referrals from Barnardos, Lanarkshire Food and Health Partnership, as

well as many referrals coming from Social Work, Family First and

Housing Support services. We also referred to some of the key

vulnerable families we have worked with over the past few months.

We recruited 25 volunteers who did the cleaning and sanitising the gifts

and wrapping them, organising the shopping, ensuring age-appropriate

gifts were given. We had a designated driver to safely deliver them to

the families. These families were in struggling situations like financially

unstable housing issues, some were re-housed, single-parent families

and families that had language barriers.

The delivery teams were overwhelmed by the gratitude for the gifts, even

receiving a standing ovation; the parents' faces, when their gifts were either

delivered or collected made everything worth it.

“I don’t really get much help with the

children, so this will support me so

much. Was not expecting that much

gifts. If I could give you a hug right

now, I would.”

MADE4U has been developing community-wide projects with the aim of

getting local schools involved. Seven schools got involved in Spring into

Hope, as the country eased out of the winter lockdown; including

Newmains, Calderbridge, St Aidan’s, Berryhill, Thornlie, Cambusnethan,

and St Thomas’ participated. The project encouraged children to create

artwork representing hope, spring, and new beginnings. MADE4U

encouraged the children to create pictures to inspire happiness and hope

for everyone in Wishaw to hang them up around the area on lampposts,

school gates etc, and set out walking routes for families to find the

childrens' artwork in 5 different locations.

Overall, we received over 500 entries, and the work we received ranged

from sketches to oil paintings to paintings and collages. These were then

printed on waterproof boards and displayed.

Through this project, we received feedback from the headteachers. All

were positive such as one saying, “I definitely smiled”, “the artwork really

brightens up our gates'' and “it’s been a lovely idea.” As well as feedback

from community members such as, “why are you taking them down, it was

such a lovely idea for the community!” and “the pictures are great - so

many budding artists.”

We also received feedback that families were heading out on walks

together to find their kids’ artwork and the artwork of their friends and

family at the same or different schools. It was a great way to get families

to explore the local area, beating boredom and enjoying time together on

yet another lockdown walk. It was also an excellent opportunity for the

children to explore the topic of hope, and some of the artwork displayed

lovely positive messages of positivity, support, hope, and new beginnings.

As a sessional worker, Ronnie’s duties

include planning and delivering sessions,

whether organising a bake-off between the

kids, making a quiz for them, or allowing

them to decide what games they would like

to play.

Ronnie said, “I first got involved with

MADE4U after my little sisters who were

engaging in one of the clubs said they were

looking for volunteers. It was one of those

summer things at the time I didn't really

have anything to do, so I gave it a chance

and ended up staying.”

Ronnie stated, “MADE4U built me up to have a proper role within the

organisation, as opposed to doing a bit or this and a bit of that, and I found that,

that particular age group worked best for me. I enjoyed the environment and

the idea of providing them with an enjoyable day and teaching them new skills.”

Clare McCormack, Project Manager said, “It’s been fabulous to have someone

like Ronnie as part of the team. There’s sometimes in this job that you meet

someone and just know they have what it takes. Ronnie has definitely been on a

journey; learning about himself, what he aspires to be and picking up skills and

confidence along the way.” Clare noted that he brings fun, energy, enthusiasm

and a different perspective. He is always willing to try something new, figure out

how to improve and understand how to make sessions more successful for the

children who attend."

Ronnie said, "To get that amount of

children to enjoy something as much

as they did, those are extremely

successful sessions, in my opinion.”

With the lockdown in effect, we were not able to carry out in-person youth

work due to the government guidelines, for much of the year in question. With

restrictions still fully in place, my remit changed slightly, which allowed me to

develop more family support and to be able to go out and handle food parcels.

In one example, where a family required assistance, there were cultural

barriers, including very little English. This family was from a different country

and sometimes struggles with spoken English. We used tools such as Google

Translate and written translation methods to communicate and visit regularly.

We were able to help with filling out forms for benefits, visas and school meal

applications as well as with food parcels and practical help like providing

drawers and wardrobes.

One of our methods of engagement with young people was through an online

art and craft video. These were prerecorded by one of our sessional workers, as

"Amber's Corner". Each activity was broken down with a step by step guide,

with the activities aimed at young people. The items that would be used would

be commonplace around a household so parents would not have to buy

anything extra. Then the videos were posted on the MADE4U Facebook page.

As the restrictions lifted slightly I was able to

shift into direct 1-to-1 support and through this,

I had the opportunity to work with two young

people and provide individual focused support

and skills building. During the first few

sessions, both young people were shy and

lacked confidence, finding it very hard to talk to

others. With regular meetings, they both gained

confidence and took part in more activities.

Both had input in the activity boxes with one

also attending the Pumpkin Light Trail to help

out with registration and on walks.

At the height of restrictions, all

shops and gathering places

were closed; young people

were forced into isolation and

were only allowed a few hours

outside per day. MADE4U

responded by developing

activity boxes as a means to

try and stop boredom, by

giving young people different

ideas and activities to do. 100

activity boxes were prepared

and delivered free of charge.

Each pack contained activities that could be done with family or individually such

as bouncy balls and frisbees, as well as various creative items such as

paintbrushes, sponges, markers and colouring pencils. The activity boxes also

came with a booklet, which included colouring pages, word searches, activity

ideas, workout and exercise plans. It also gave links to YouTube videos to look up

as well as a well-being and mindfulness section that had a step-by-step guide on


The activity boxes offered families

experiencing disadvantage within ML2, a

sense of purpose and something

different they could do while being

stuck in the house. They provided fun

for the family, no matter their age, as

both parents and children each did the

activities offered within the box,

evidently shown by the positive

feedback received by MADE4U.

It was a great privilege for MADE4U to be awarded £2,500 to support the needs

of people within the community, with up to £100 going to each child. This

funding was awarded through Youth Scotland, who were delivering the Winter

Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government. It was an excellent opportunity to

engage with families in need and offer instant support in items ranging from

hoovers, pots and pans to clothing for children and vouchers for high street

shops to support with school wear and other essentials.

This was a great chance to understand and

tackle the immediate needs and focus on the

young people’s best interests. MADE4U

assisted ten families through the winter

fund and directly improved the living

conditions for 31 children and young people.

The families we engaged with needed extra

support. For example, one family were

moved into supported accommodation by

North Lanarkshire Council but were left

without access to any cooking equipment

other than a microwave and a kettle. Social

workers also ensured they received a cooker

for their home to cook on while MADE4U

provided food vouchers, pots and pans,

clothes and cooking utensils to those most in


Other families had been affected by long lockdowns, multiple periods of

isolation and a higher cost of living. In meeting with the families and

discussing the most pressing needs in their lives, we gained insight into the

struggles people were facing through the lockdown, as result of a perfect


The funding allowed us to work with the families directly, to identify where

the funding would make the most impact on their material needs, drastically

improving the quality of their everyday lives.

A single father said, “This is incredible and such a big help, you have no idea.

Working in partnership with Coltness High School, we supported a group of 4

students. These individuals required extra help and assistance or were struggling

to fit in with the current academic learning. This was a core group of young people

S3+ with weekly sessions for 3hours every Friday morning. In the sessions, we

focused on carrying out development and support activities such as:

Healthy eating

Understanding emotions and best reactions

Cooking healthy eating and lifestyles

Awareness of alcohol and drugs

Employability interviews and applications writing

Life choices

Volunteering opportunities

Dealing with challenging situations

Set out a budget for home

Looking into renting

Opening up a bank account

Planning routes to the future

Online Safety

Understanding the community

To begin with, we started with polling the students' hopes and aspirations. This was to

ensure that the work directly benefitted the young people, and the work was co-produced.

The young people also identified topics they would like to work on, meaning the student

took an active role in their own upskilling. An introduction to car maintenance was the first

choice topic. They also chose to get involved in MADE4U centre life and took on some small

volunteering roles such as attending the Pumpkin Light Trail.

The students looked forward to the sessions each week; confidence grew, finding it easier to

ask for help with their own lives. We also worked through an employability section, and

worked individually with each student on their chosen direction, identifying the steps they

would need to take. We worked through a mock application and interview with them which

was hugely beneficial. This helped the young people build up experience and talk through

some common questions. Near the end of this group and the finish date, 2 of the young

people gained employment with a young person stating that this exercise helped instil more

confidence when in the interview.

One of the activities the young people chose to do, was making a movie focusing on bullying

in school. They worked through creating the characters with their own experiences and the

issues they, or those they knew, would be going through. This was entirely directed by the

students, who could take full responsibility in the shape it took. Choosing this topic allowed

us the chance to discuss other social justice issues and the part they can play. Overall, we

feel that the group was of huge benefit, and look forward to continuing this partnership to

support young people who are disengaging from traditional school learning.


Wellbeing is central to the difference we aim to

make in our local community. In early 2020 we set

our sights on making a bigger impact in the

community. As the first lockdown hit us in March

2020 and continued on into July, we were given the

opportunity to help those who were most in need

in the ML2 area.

We quickly responded to community need, and on the first day of lockdown,

launched our community response team, mobilising our small staff team and

keen volunteers to deliver 15,000 leaflets in the first weeks, and gain

viewership of our response by 36,000 on Facebook.

The emergency food provisions MADE4U

introduced were due to a variety of

reasons, including furlough, being paid

off from jobs, zero hours' insecurity,

shielding and isolation, and illness. We

were quick off the mark and were soon

Our befriending service primarily offers a service to

anyone in the community who may benefit, and aims to

be a listening-ear and unconditional support. Many of

our calls began with referrals for a shielding or

emergency food parcel; however, our service ensures

that we give people the option to receive weekly checkins

or to receive a longer befriending call. A large

number of people have taken MADE4U up on this offer,

not only through this channel, but through direct

referrals, signposting or ever self-referral. Befrienders

offer an all-round service, willing to chat about family,

friends, isolation, health and mental health and much


During the height of the pandemic people were

struggling from all walks of life. While some people

could make ends meet with some help with

shopping or a 3-day parcel, many people were

unable to cook or prepare food for themselves. We

have discovered there are many reasons a low-cost

meal can improve someone's quality of life; they

may not be feeling well either physically or mental,

may be elderly or infirm, or never have learned the

skills. Whatever the reason, our meals aim to meet

that need, offered at "pay as you feel", or £1

suggested donation.

In April 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic,

people were struggling in all manner of ways. Some

people struggled financially, or with cooking. However,

there was a group of people we identified who were

struggling with fear, isolation and inability to get out and

do their own shopping themselves. MADE4U were happy

to stand in the gap for people, and pick up this service

for those who couldn't shop online or get to the shops

themselves. We built brilliant relationships with people

who chose to use this service, and often were able to

help guide people around budgeting, healthy eating or

other issues. What a privilege to be in people's lives this




Alongside our Christmas Toy Drive, we delivered upwards of 100

adult gift hampers to those we had been supporting throughout

the year, who were going to be on their own, didn't have family

or were otherwise struggling and isolated. Each box was made up

specifically for the person in question, based on what we knew of

them. We included things like toiletries, gloves, hats, socks, wool,

scares and small luxuries like perfume, earphones, candles,

scarves eye shadow pallets, shortbread, photo frames and

chocolates. The gratitude for these simple gifts was

overwhelming; people were incredibly moved by people daring

to think about them, and remember them at such a difficult time

of year.

We were also privileged to send out 250 3-course Christmas

meals to those who were going to be on their own at Christmas,

and for other reasons couldn't cook for themselves. This was so

well received by the local community as well as by family and

friends who were supporting them.

“You know me so well, everything in it was perfect” M, 55

“I was so excited to see what was in it, I stayed up past midnight to see

what was in it” E, 83

Alongside the work highlighted above, there are many other elements of our wellbeing work

in the community that we have been able to deliver. Some examples include our online

Scottish Event, Scottish Meals, Christmas Walks, Nominating and highlighting Community

Legends, Prize Giveaways, Quizzes, and much more.

At MADE4U, as well as our values, we have a set of

standards that we aim to work to. We commit to the

following ways of working:

Partner with other organisations and bodies in order to meet priority social

objectives in the ML2 area

Link with community groups, services and provisions and signposting people

accordingly, to support a wider range of people in the community

Listen to our community to keep up to date with current needs and assets

Build people’s capacity and connections, to allow more opportunities

One of our key youth work partnerships in this year was with the local area Community

Learning and Development team. This was central in us working together to deliver a

transitions group for young people moving from primary 7 to first year, with the

understanding that this would be difficult year due to missing much of Primary 7 and losing

out on much socialisation time. We also partnered to support CL&D's LGBTQ group on the

Thursday evening, giving a vital safe space for young people to discuss key shared issues.

Many other partnerships supported our work throughout the year including with local

businesses, local schools and other community groups. We are thankful for the support

from Coltness High, Pathway Church, Calderbridge, and Cambusnethan North for their

support in the Christmas Activities as well as use of premises. Other partnerships emerged

around food provision, key being VANL and Lanarkshire Community Food and Health

Partnership as well as all those who supported the emergency food provision work,

including social work teams, The Avenue, Tokui Ryu Karate, Pepe's Zambia Football

Foundation, teachers and wider community at Coltness High, RBS at main street, Pizza Hut,

Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers, Cambusnethan North Ladies Group and many more who we

haven't been able to name.

Signposting has always been a key part of our way of operating, however, with the onset of

the pandemic, and huge amounts of people turning to us for help, it became ever most

important. We had to develop links and routes to signpost people for benefit support, social

work and CPN referrals, energy support and advice and more. We also had to co-ordinate

with other agencies and support services in adjacent areas and link in where the support

needed was beyond our expertise. We made over 300 referrals for people to receive further

support beyond the support that was given by MADE4U.

Our response to the pandemic stemmed from listening closely to the needs of the

community around us. We committed to this in a number of ways, firstly in contacting

existing members to understand the need and the struggles that people were facing.

Secondly in ensuring we were in key forums discussing developments and emerging themes

and needs. Thirdly, we reached out further to start to understand how people were coping,

and how the pandemic was affecting them. Our initial reach for the Community Response

Team allowed us to be responsive and meet people's needs as they arose, instead of

turning people away. As the work developed, both in terms of the response team, and

wider, we continually sought feedback from people (community, partners, volunteers and

staff members) to ensure that our offering remained relevant and that work is evaluated

well. This process is the process that underpins all of our work.

We always aim to build capacity in the people who connect with us. In the year in question,

around 20 of our volunteers worked towards their saltire awards, 6 people gained food

hygiene qualifications, 4 people were supported to make more fulfilling life choices and

decide on their future direction. All staff underwent renewal of their safeguarding training,

staff were supported to finish college courses and degrees and start new courses on

leadership. Staff and volunteers underwent training on youth work, understanding Autism

in context, and delivering Hi-5 awards as well as Creative Play for Children. Teachers were

released from their jobs to get involved in the community response and students and

construction workers alike put down their tools to upskill and assist the community.


It has been such a privilege to steward MADE4U's growing resources over this past

year, to help the work edge ever towards the bigger strategy and vision and to

work alongside so many people in the community to make a difference.

In the coming year, we aim to continue development of work in the three strands

identified; youth work, wellbeing and kids work. Our hope is to work towards

utilising the Kickstart scheme and recruiting addition Community Job Scotland

worker to assist in the key areas; administration, youth work and kids work. We

hope to work with North Lanarkshire Council again in delivering Club365 in

summer 2021, and to continue to build on key partnerships with schools for

outdoor play and Dynamic youth awards.

Key to the success of the coming year is moving our Wellbeing work to a more

sustainable basis and hopefully recruiting a skilled and passionate development

worker into this area. The staff team should also expand with recruitment of a

Future Pathways worker who will develop and pilot a 10-week mentoring

programme with young people and young adults, growing people's capacity for

gaining employment, future directions and building skills to contribute to their

local community.

It is our hope to continue building on funding and fundraising success by

diversifying income streams, building individual and major giving and employing

the support of Bruce Tait Associates to bring in more unrestricted grant funding to

support the wider work.

Project Manager




As can be seen from our Income and Expenditure in the last financial year

(year-end March 2021), MADE4U had a period of hugely improved income as

well as expenditure. This is in direct correlation to the increase of work

that MADE4U was able to undertake in the community as a result of the

COVID-19 pandemic, and reflects on the strong strategy and vision set by

the board. The growth rate of our charitable activities in these financial

terms is 67%.

As our income levels were increased, we saw a jump in the variety and

types of donors and funders who chose to support our work. We were

pleased to receive donations from other local community organisations,

such as Pathway Church, Hailey's coaches and others, in order to respond

to the community need, and to deliver vital projects such as the Christmas

Toy Drive.

Larger donations also increased which we were grateful for. Small donations from local community members

totalled 10,198 and the majority of this was for Covid-19 work as well as over 1500 donated by the Coltness

High School community included in this number. £9464 of our donations were directly related to our

shopping assistance project, which relates to a similar level of expenditure in charitable activities.

Similarly, with Grants, we saw increased support in general; most of our support came from funders

wishing to assist organisations with their covid response. Some funding noted here was for use in the

following financial year, and also helps us understand the 'surplus' in the year, which was mostly funding

reserved for work outwith the year we are reporting on. This included a large portion of the Scottish

Government Communities Recovery Fund and. second traunch of the Response, Resilience and Recovery

Funding. It is also worth noting that smaller funds < £1000 were also essential in this financial year, in

helping us purchase equipment, food provisions and other covid essentials. Special thanks go to those

funders who stepped up quickly and offered to fund organisations early in this financial year, often

offering financial support which could be utilised in February and March 2020.

The majority of our expenditure in this financial year

was allocated to Staffing costs and this included our

core team, sessional, CJS and other apprentice staff as

well as some freelance staffing costs. This represented

64% of our charitable activity costs. Operating

Greenfield Drive was our next highest category of

expenditure at 14% of our costs and this included light,

heat, wast as well as over £7000 in rental to North

Lanarkshire Council. Other notable costs were project

costs such as the foodbank (£3832), Toy Drive (£2950),

and the Winter Fund (£2420) as well as shopping costs


It should be noted, also, that both our income and expenditure for previously run projects had virtually

stopped. We expect that the majority of these projects will be relaunched when the restrictions will allow

us to do so and that project income/expenditure of this sort will be represented in future years' accounts.

Independent Examiner's Report to the Trustees of


I report on the accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 set out on pages sixteen to thirty one.

The charity's trustees are responsible for the preparation of the accounts in accordance with the terms of the Charities and

Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Charities Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2006. The charity's trustees

consider that the audit requirement of Regulation 10(1)(a) to (c) of the Accounts Regulations does not apply. It is my

responsibility to examine the accounts as required under Section 44(1)(c) of the Act and to state whether particular matters

have come to my attention.

Basis of the independent examiner's report

My examination was carried out in accordance with Regulation 11 of the Charities Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2006.

An examination includes a review of the accounting records kept by the charity and a comparison of the accounts presented

with those records. It also includes consideration of any unusual items or disclosures in the accounts, and seeking

explanations from you as trustees concerning any such matters. The procedures undertaken do not provide all the evidence

that would be required in an audit, and consequently I do not express an audit opinion on the view given by the accounts.

Independent examiner's statement

In connection with my examination, no matter has come to my attention :

(1) which gives me reasonable cause to believe that, in any material respect, the requirements

- to keep accounting records in accordance with Section 44(1)(a) of the 2005 Act and Regulation 4 of the 2006

Accounts Regulations; and

- to prepare accounts which accord with the accounting records and to comply with Regulation 8 of the 2006 Accounts


have not been met; or

(2) to which, in my opinion, attention should be drawn in order to enable a proper understanding of the accounts to be

Notes to the Financial Statements

for the Year Ended 31 March 2021


Basis of preparing the financial statements

The financial statements of the charitable company, which is a public benefit entity under FRS 102, have been

prepared in accordance with the Charities SORP (FRS 102) 'Accounting and Reporting by Charities: Statement of

Recommended Practice applicable to charities preparing their accounts in accordance with the Financial Reporting

Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland (FRS 102) (effective 1 January 2019)', Financial Reporting

Standard 102 'The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland' and the Companies

Act 2006. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention.


All income is recognised in the Statement of Financial Activities once the charity has entitlement to the funds, it is

probable that the income will be received and the amount can be measured reliably. The following specific policies

are applied to particular categories of income:

(a) Donations

Donations are included in the year in which they are receivable and the amount can be measured reliably.

(b) Grants

Grants are included in the year in which they are receivable and the amount can be measured reliably; this is

normally upon notification from the grant funder.

(c) Interest receivable

Interest on funds held on deposit is included when receivable and the amount can be measured reliably by the

charity; this is normally upon notification of the interest paid or payable by the bank.


Liabilities are recognised as expenditure as soon as there is a legal or constructive obligation committing the charity

to that expenditure, it is probable that a transfer of economic benefits will be required in settlement and the amount

of the obligation can be measured reliably. Expenditure is accounted for on an accruals basis and has been classified

under headings that aggregate all cost related to the category. Where costs cannot be directly attributed to particular

headings they have been allocated to activities on a basis consistent with the use of resources.

Tangible fixed assets

Depreciation is provided at the following annual rates in order to write off each asset over its estimated useful life.

Tenant improvements

Office equipment

- 20% on cost

- 33% on cost


The charity is exempt from corporation tax on its charitable activities.

Fund accounting

Unrestricted funds can be used in accordance with the charitable objectives at the discretion of the trustees.

Restricted funds can only be used for particular restricted purposes within the objects of the charity. Restrictions

arise when specified by the donor or when funds are raised for particular restricted purposes.

Further explanation of the nature and purpose of each fund is included in the notes to the financial statements.

Hire purchase and leasing commitments

Rentals paid under operating leases are charged to the Statement of Financial Activities on a straight line basis over

the period of the lease.

Pension costs and other post-retirement benefits

The charitable company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. Contributions payable to the charitable

company's pension scheme are charged to the Statement of Financial Activities in the period to which they relate.

net of any discounts due.

Cash at bank and in hand

Cash at bank and cash in hand includes cash and short term highly liquid investments with a short maturity of three

months or less from the date of acquisition or opening of the deposit or similar account.


Creditors are recognised where the charity has a present obligation resulting from a past event that will probably

result in the transfer of funds to a third party and the amount due to settle the obligation can be measured or

estimated reliably. Creditors are normally recognised at their settlement amount after allowing for any discounts

get in touch.

Do you have what it takes to lead our

charity into the next chapter in a dynamic
