Active Life Club have been instrumental in my passion for Creative Media. They have helped me build up my skills from video editing, photography and web development which has led me to study these subjects for my future career.

West of Scotland Regional Council (WSREC) would like to indicate its support for Active Life Club (ALC), an important organisation working in the heart of the South Side of Glasgow, Glasgow.
We recognize the huge and important contributions it has made for the youth through sport and capacity building over the last decade and more. It is an organisation well known to WSREC for its commitment and the involved of youth within all its activity including decision making as part of ALC Committee membership.
ALC is a valued affiliate of WSREC and wishes it all the best with its work for bringing Youth activity and into the heart of the community.
ALC aims to promote the social, physical and mental well-being of disadvantaged and excluded groups in Glasgow and provide a range of recreational and diversionary activities for young people goes hand in hand with WSREC’s vision of ‘we see an inclusive society free from discrimination’ and one of own aim of ‘fostering good community relations’.
I have seen firsthand the fantastic work carried out by Active Life Club. Their contribution to integrating different groups in the community has led to a visible improvement in my constituency like in Govanhill and Pollokshields. It’s not just community relations that have benefited from ALC’s input, young people are more engaged in learning, sports and local projects making them feel like they have a stake in their environment and future.
