The Preshal Trust is a Scottish Charity ~ No. SC033632

About the Trust

The Preshal Trust was launched in November 2002 and is a registered charity based in Govan. This is an area of economic and social deprivation with high unemployment, low educational attainment, poor health and serious poverty levels and our objective is to provide support and to deliver a range of services to socially excluded people and families living in the Govan area of Glasgow.

The work of the organisation is underpinned by the following Mission Statement:

“The aim of the Preshal Trust is to make a difference to the lives of people within South West Glasgow by providing holistic, locally based care and support to individuals and their families suffering from the effects of social exclusion.”

‘Preshal’ is the Gaelic for precious - and this is one of the key values that describes the care and support given to all people who access our services.


Our Client Base

The project supports a range of clients of all ages who have addiction problems, mental health issues, disabilities, ex-offenders, prisoners and their families, infants, children, young people, parents and carers and anyone affected by social exclusion and isolation.

We have received an increase in referrals from the Scottish Association for Mental Health, Addaction, Social Work & NHS Departments, Elder Park Homeless Unit and various Housing Associations. We are able to offer facilities to outside groups to work alongside them and support them and have an Addiction Group Meeting (SMART) who meet every Thursday within the Trust premises.

In particular, emphasis is given to our Early Intervention Youth Programme where we want to reach young people before they take part in gang culture or anti-social behaviour.
