Organisation aims and objectives

Govanhill Baths Community Trust grew out of a long and hard-fought all volunteer community campaign. Today an invaluable and highly significant amount of the work of the Trust is performed and supported by volunteers. It is our goal to celebrate, provide support, training and encouragement to our volunteers. The purpose of the Govanhill Baths Community Trust is to ensure that Govanhill Baths is re-opened as a publicly funded well-being centre. The centre would be used for the improvement in health and well-being of all the residents in Govanhill and the surrounding area. Today the Baths are a thriving centre taking in a theatre company (Govanhill Theatre Group) and a wide and continually growing range of groups and classes. These all contribute to the support and development of the community and the long term regeneration of the Baths themselves.
