Motion text

That this House notes the work of Maslow's, based in Govan, Glasgow, a volunteer-run community second hand shop providing free clothing, household goods, food and English classes to asylum seekers, refugees and people experiencing hardship within the local community, with all profits going back into the local community in which it operates; supports Maslow's with its vision to help asylum seekers and refugees to feel included in the communities they now live in by offering daily essentials, as well as education and support; acknowledges the vital work it does signposting its clients towards services within the community; recognises the valuable contribution the volunteers, often from asylum seeker or refugee backgrounds, make within the growth and continued success of the shop; congratulates the staff within the shop who have successfully undertaken the Community Achievement Award run by Kelvin College; and wishes it continued growth and success in its future plans for expansion.
