Seeing is Believing
How women's Self Reliant Groups (SRGs) are changing things in our poorest commuities.
Deprived Communities: No aspirations?
No skills? No confidence? We’ll let you decide.
Since February 2011, based on a model from India, women in some of the poorest communities in Glasgow have been working away in Self-Reliant Groups (SRGs), relying solely on themselves and each other, and making a unique economic contribution in ways that have enabled them to take control of their lives and make real change happen. SRGs and its ethos have a significant potential to transform the health and socio-economic landscape of Scotland.
Come and see. Seeing is Believing.
