Partnerships

Finn's Place, Glasgow

The Go For It Team are convinced that making connections and building relationships are the key components of a project’s success and sustainability. When the Fund was established, one thing we were determined to do, was to build strong partnership working with the amazing range of agencies within the Church of Scotland and outwith. With a staff team of 2.9 FTE, this is essential to help us deliver the widest range of support to our projects.
