The role of the Communities Manager is to engage with traditionally non-engaging communities within Glasgow and develop links for GCA. There is a particular focus on the LGBTQ+ communities as well as those affected by poverty, trauma, homelessness as well as those from the BAME communities.

The Communities Manager will lead/facilitate the Kinder Stronger Better (KSB) Operational Group and be the conduit to the KSB Steering Group as well as managing KSB Volunteers. GCA is the lead partner in Kinder Stronger Better.

KSB are a group of LGBTQ+ community members and professionals in Glasgow that came together to design a LGBTQ+ alcohol and other drug related health campaign and called it #KinderStrongerBetter. KSB works together towards communities and services that are visibly supportive of LGBTQ+ people who are affected by their own or someone else’s alcohol or drug use. This project is part of wider work being undertaken by the Glasgow LGBTQI+ Substance Use Partnership, comprising alcohol, drug, LGBTQ+ and family support services, as well as the NHS and academic researchers. The group was set up in recognition of the health inequalities experienced by LGBTQ+ people around substance use (alcohol & drugs) and following on from research showing that LGBTQ+ people can face additional barriers to accessing drug and alcohol support.
