An Agency for Pollokshields Scottish Charity No: SCO33424
Pollokshields Development Agency was formally established in 1989 and operates as a company limited by guarantee with charitable status providing services in the south side of Glasgow. We have worked with and on behalf of diverse communities within Pollokshields for more than 25 years. Our priorities have always been identification of local needs and the provision of services to meet these needs. We deliver services directly to the communities and also work in partnership with other organisations to deliver specialist services which we cannot deliver with our current resources.
PDA was originally based in a portacabin in McCulloch Street and when this was demolished in 2004 we moved into the Pollokshields Community Centre. In view of the arrival of new communities and settling in the south side of Glasgow the management board of Pollokshields Development Agency at its AGM 2013 made an amendment to the constitution to rename PDA, as Southside Development Agency to facilitate the service provision to wider communities.
We run several projects also deliver services by partnership working. Our aim remains community regeneration, integration, and cohesion.
