To help manage this, and to ensure activities are socially distanced, the group wants to take over a unit inside Doges, which sits between two units it already uses.

What is Threshold Glasgow?

The organisation supports around 100 people in Glasgow - some at their home, some at community facilities, and others who use the Day Opportunities service.

This service, which gives its users the chance to learn and develop, has seen a big increase in users.

The new unit, if approved, would allow the group to run sessions including yoga, arts and crafts, and educational activities.
