Out and About

We run lots of projects in the local area including photography, active girls group, summer programmes including music festivals and also celebration events for local young people.

Photography Workshops

We have asked young people to capture through photography every day situations in their lives which represent positive mental health. We have entered the ‘See Me’ photography competition every year and have been successful with winners and runners up in the competition!!

Music Festival

Loud and Live musoc event

Two free music festivals were held in Cambuslang Park and Overtoun Park in the summer of 2010 to increase the positive use of parks by young people by providing safe alternatives to drinking in the parks therefore reducing antisocial behaviour. They were great events which will hopefully be repeated in 2011.

Celebration Event

An “OSCARS” event to celebrate the incredible achievements of young people in Cambuslang and Rutherglen was held in November 2010. It was a chance to show how inspirational young people are and remind us of the valuable contribution so many young people make to the community. The event consisted of the following award categories - Volunteering, Working in the Community, Achievement in Sport, Achievement in Art and Culture, Inspirational Role Model and Outstanding Achievement.

Active Girls Group

Girls from the local schools are taking part in a fun Active Girls Group. The Girls take part in a free 10 week activity course run after school. We use fun games and activities so we can increase self esteem and confidence, increase fitness levels, increase their circle of friends, increase their activity levels and get girls motivated to try other activities in the local area.


If you would like The Den to provide a workshop to a group you are running, please e-mail a request to Caroline Dewey and I can come out and chat with your group about what health topics the young people are interested in.
