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 our 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. 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


Congratulations to all nominees, especially to the winner Cathie Smith. Cathie has spent many hours transforming the shared garden areas at Prince Albert Road to the stage where they have become a hub for residents to come together  for a chat, a catch-up, and musical gatherings!
