Children’s Services Awards

Glasgow’s Child Protection Committee (CPC) announced four good practice award winners at a prestifge cerekony in the City Chambers.

The four were: Keppoch Medical Centre; the Young Parent Support based at Smithycroft; Addiction Early Pregnancy Service and Ashgill Recreation Centre ‘ARC STARS’ basketball team.

Carol Hainey, health visitor at Keppoch Health Centre, said: “We are delighted that Glasgow’s CPC has recognised the work that the practice team is doing. It is a privilege working with families in Possilpark and the health visiting team feels very fortunate to be so well supported by Keppoch Medical Practice."

Fiona Stevenson, lead officer for the Child Protection Committee, added: "This is our second year where we ask services to nominate themselves for the work that they have done in collaboration with other services to make a real, positive, impact on the lives of vulnerable children and their families.

“Our winning services are excellent examples of good practice and working together, clearly demonstrating good outcomes for children, young people and their families."
