Jim Michael Community Award

Introduction

Glasgow West Housing Association Ltd is run by a Management Committee made up of volunteers who have dedicated thousands of hours of their time on behalf of GWHA residents to make the organisation a success in the community.

As part of GW's 30th celebrations, and in recognition of Jim Michael’s contribution to GWHA, (27 years Management Committee service, 24 as Secretary) and of his dedication to the wider West End community, a Community Award was launched in 2008.

Objective

The objective of this award is to acknowledge the commitment of exceptional people who make a difference to the lives of people living in the community: the people who make the community what it is.

This Year's Winner

This year’s Jim Michael award was presented to joint winners Hazel Ralston and Isobel Cambell for their commitment to the Anderston Community. In particular for the good work at the Anderston Youth Café and their endeavours in transforming the “big square” – an attractive backcourt and recovery of lost amenity space.
