Mission Statement for The Preshal Trust
Preshal – the Gaelic for “precious” – and that is how we feel about everyone who comes through our doors of the Preshal Trust Centre.
In a friendly, caring, loving and supportive way Preshal seeks to tackle, head-on, the problem of social exclusion in the Linthouse area of Glasgow. This problem is manifested in poverty, alcohol and drug addiction, low literacy and numeracy levels, depression and low self-esteem.
The Trust, working with other agencies, provides a wide range of social, recreational and educational activities which enable these issues to be dealt with effectively. We adopt an holistic approach whereby we seek to cater for the whole person, including meeting individual physical, mental and – as a Christian rooted organisation – spiritual needs.
The Trust's premises are open
Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 4:00pm.
Each day there is a varied programme of activities (always beginning with tea and toast!), and in any one week folk engage in pastimes such as art and craft work, including card making, digital photography, board and table games, cooking, sewing, literacy, numeracy and IT classes.
We also encourage our people to socialise and build relationships, and activities such as the three times weekly lunch club, quizzes and pool tournaments assist this process!
