Who we are

The Wheel Trust has been working in schools and churches in the West End of Glasgow since 2006. We aim to encourage young people to consider big issues and the relevance of the Christian faith, and to support their mental, social, physical, spiritual and intellectual development.

 

The Trust is run by Trustees and a Management committee. These people come from West End churches, some of which also support our work financially alongside individual donors and charitable trusts.

 

We employ two part-time, highly qualified and motivated Youth Team Co-ordinators, who get alongside our volunteers to run events and support existing projects.

The Wheel Trust is a member of SU Scotland's Asscociate Worker Scheme

Kathryn Campbell

Youth Team Coordinator

focused on Hyndland Learing Community

Kathryn Campbell is our worker focussed on the Hyndland Secondary learning community.

Kathryn has been involved in running youth projects since the (late!) 1990s, working with school, church and community groups since 2001. When not having deep and meaningful conversations with teenagers (or covering them in flour) she can be found in the great outdoors. Probably eating cake. Or in the kitchen, baking cake.
