Hillhead Community Centre is a modern, multifunctional building that can house a variety of regular groups and activities, as well as playing host to one-off events.
Hillhead Community Centre is normally host to GRACE (Group Recovery Aftercare Community Enterprise), Citizens Advice Bureau Outreach, and the Small Talk Café.
The Centre is located at the heart of the Hillhead community surrounded by domestic dwellings providing convenient and easy access for all.
