The following organisations were assisted to Find a Solution by teams of 2 students during the summer of 2017:
- Lambhill Stables: An analysis of the needs of the area using demographic statistics and other data.
- Indepen-Dance: An analysis of the impact of participation as a tool for developing future strategy
- St Paul’s Youth Forum: A business plan for a “city farm”
In addition, 2 students from the School of Computing Science assisted Kingsway Health and Wellbeing with their IT system.
All the projects were completed successfully and helped each of the organisations find solutions to problems. After receiving the final report, Mel – from St Paul’s Youth Forum – had this to say:
Thank you so much for this excellent report! Working with you both as part of the Find a Solution project has been a great opportunity for SPYF to realise a long-held dream and take things further with our growing space. Without your passion and hard graft, this would not have been possible. This is a very significant piece of research…nothing like it i.e. with such depth and sustained engagement has been done in this community in recent years. (As far as I know!)
We have already been taking suggestions on board, and (funding pending) there should be a 2nd member of staff to coordinate the growing activities from the beginning of April!
