After 15 years of testing, changing and evolving our services and the way we deliver them, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation has funded YMCA Crewe to translate our approach into an accessible product called GLOscape.

GLOscape shifts a landscape which sees people as a problem to be solved or a risk to be managed, to a changed landscape of Growth, Life and Opportunity.

GLOscape is an accessible and organic model, recognised by commissioners and funders. It operates both as a service shaper and delivery model for asset-based frontline services.

GLOscape equips staff to support the Growth of assets and connections, encourages people to deal with Life in all its nitty gritty and promotes the take up of new Opportunities that alter individual landscapes.
