The Whiteinch area of Glasgow is identified as an area of multiple deprivation, in fact Whiteinch score's within the top 5% of the most deprived areas in Scotland. Social issues such as food poverty, social isolation and poor social mobility are prevalent within this diverse communitiy and Well-Fed work with the community to combat these issues in a meaningful and community led way. Within Whiteinch, Well-Fed really has become a vibrant and busy community hub right in the centre of the community. We have achieved this by creating a community café which offers a safe and comfortable environment in which the community can eat well and socialise freely. Well-Fed have become a genuine source of social capital within Whiteinch and by operating 12 hours a day, 7 days a week we are helping to build social capital within the community. Well-Fed will soon relocate to new premises within Whiteinch and we are excited about the challenges that lie ahead.
