Glasgow South Community Hub can be found at 539 Langside Lane / Victoria Road, G42 8BH

On the 1st april 2019 we unveiled our brand new Southside Hub in Govanhill. We moved from 509 Victoria Road just around the corner to 539 Langside Lane / Victoria Road, due to the growing demand for our services and need for more space!
