We'd like to welcome our new resident researcher, Beth!

Beth will be working with us at Baltic Street Adventure Playground with the University of Glasgow to understand what is important for people when they access food. Baltic Street is great because of the people who use it, which means you! Beth would love to know about your experiences, opinions and stories.

Beth will be working alongside us at the food hub and other activities and hopes to chat to lots of you about your experiences. If you'd like to get involved, please come say hi to Beth! You can also email her at or give her a call or text on 07541341172.

There is no pressure to take part in the research, and you can also take part and stop at any time if you want to. You can use your real name, fake name (pseudonym) or remain anonymous - whichever you prefer to help maintain confidentiality and your comfort.

As a thank you, Beth would like to gift a £10 Love2Shop voucher, which is a voucher you can use in lots of different shops.

Any and all outputs (like articles) will be made available to access by anyone who takes part and other community members upon request.

If you want to get in contact and have a chat or ask any questions, grab a cuppa with Beth to go over anything!

For more information, there is an information sheet below. If you'd prefer to hear these documents, let Beth know and she can send you an audio file. You can also look at how we use the 'data' (the chats you have) in the document called 'Privacy Notice'

We can't wait to hear from you!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our team of staff and volunteers.

They have worked tirelessly since the beginning of the pandemic, tailoring their approach to suit each individual's specific needs.

The support provided has ranged from emergency food parcel deliveries and numerous mental health interventions to delivering about 10 fridge freezers to the wee woman who keeps breaking .

In this ever changing landscape you are always up for the challenge. (No matter what crazy ideas we come up with)

Another holiday programme smashed out the park.#HoFop Hopefully the next time round we will have children playing on the playground!

Well done team BSAP

Our community art project is in full swing! Working with a number of artists, local families and young people are receiving art packs every week to create art and explore their local space.

This week was Bella's turn. She provided participants with sketch books, pencils, crayons and pva glue and the task to go outside and use the environment to create art work inspired by growth. The outcomes have been great to see! Lots of creative thinking and everyone getting outside in all weather to fill their sketchbooks and engage with the environment in ways they might not normally!

The project is funded by Glasgow Connected Arts Network.

We can't wait to see what everyone creates next!

If you live locally to Baltic Street Adventure Playground and would like to take part, please don't hesitate to get in touch to find out how you can get an art pack!
