Dalmarnock Legacy Hub

One of the centrepieces of Commonwealth Games legacy, the Dalmarnock Legacy Hub, has been officially opened creating 50 new jobs.

On 9 October 2015, Jamie Hepburn, Minister for Sport, Health Improvement and Mental Health, and Councillor Frank McAveety, Leader of Glasgow City Council, formally opened the centre.

The £3.5 million hub, in the shadow of the Emirates Arena, is a community-owned centre that has brought 50 new jobs to the east end of Glasgow.

Run and delivered by the People’s Development Trust, with significant funding from the Scottish Government, Clyde Gateway and the Big Lottery Fund Scotland, the hub was built to provide local people with new services in the aftermath of the Games. Glasgow City Council provided the land for the hub, sold for a nominal sum of £1 to the trust. It is designed to provide a link between the established and new communities in the area.
