Beyond the Finish Line

This ambitious programme to regenerate local areas was fuelled by the momentum of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the imagination of the city’s young people. 

We asked budding young social entrepreneurs to come up with inspiring initiatives to tackle social problems and high street decline in their local communities and they rose to the challenge. They received £2014 to make it happen, one-to-one business support, mentoring from industry experts, and free workspace in the city centre which became a hub of creative activity as they prepared to open for business during the Games.

The end result is ten social enterprises working on Glasgow’s high streets, creating real social impact and footfall to other local businesses. They range from fashion design and furniture upcycling to confidence workshops and community cinema – emphasising our belief that thriving high streets are about more than just retail outlets
