Clydesdale Community Initiatives was initially set-up in 2002 to enable young people at risk and adults with mental health issues to develop a derelict site in Lanark, South Lanarkshire. This project was so successful, with both groups gaining exceptional skills and confidence from their involvement, that it was decided they would undertake further projects. Since then, Clydesdale Community Initiatives who are also known as CCI have worked on a myriad of projects, all of which have had community or client input. By incorporating the principle that no one should be defined in terms of their support needs, rather they should be recognised for the contribution they are able to offer, their clients have gained invaluable experience of vocational and social skills and as a result their self-confidence has increased, often reducing long term demands on mainstream services as a result. Social Enterprise To ensure CCI ould continue to provide as many placements as possible to vulnerable adults and children alike, they took the decision to set up a trading side to the business – CCI Trading. This business offers a full landscape construction and design service but ensures that their key guiding principles are at the forefront of everything they do. With a variety of projects from driveways, patios, walling (which includes restoration of stone walling and dyking) lawns, fencing, decking, ground maintenance and soft landscaping their clients have been able to take part and help to promote social inclusion in the workplace. CCI also boasts a woodwork workshop onsite that has been extremely beneficial to all that attend. CCI continues to work with a variety of community groups, schools, development trusts, and public sector and private homes and have a vision to expand their customer base in the near future. All profits are channelled back into CCI to help improve, develop and expand our programmes so that we can continue to support individuals with support needs in what are often life changing placements.
