Since 2001, Maryhill Integration Network SCIO (MIN) has been bringing communities together through social, cultural and educational projects. Our overall aim is to support meaningful and lasting positive community integration and we work with a wide cross section of community participants from asylum seeker, refugee and migrant backgrounds and members of the local host community. MIN’s main service is a weekly programme of activities, offering people a chance to share experiences, develop skills and take part in worthwhile activities to improve their communities. This runs alongside regular community events and outreach partnership projects which are coordinated across the city. During the Covid 19 crisis we have adapted the services we provide to support the communities and volunteers we work with which includes providing online groups, activities, meetings and advice whenever possible.
About the role
