Kinning Park Complex is an independent multi-use community centre. Run by the community since they had to step in to prevent closure of the facility by the local Council in 1996.

We also manage community development projects in the local area.

Conversations about what helps turn both well-meaning concern and mis-spent energy into sustainable, system-changing lives: lived for the common good.
