Place: Twechar


Twechar is located 2 miles south west of Kilsyth and is a former mining and quarrying village.

Twechar Community Action was formed in 2001 as a response to the closure of the Local Authority owned recreation centre in Twechar.  Twechar Community Action transformed the centre into the Twechar Healthy Living and Enterprise Centre

Twechar Healthy Living and Enterprise Centre is a community hub at the heart of the Twechar community hosting vast range of activities and services.  It houses a full time pharmacy, a satellite GP surgery, café, sport hall and meeting rooms.

Twechar Community Action worked with Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) in 2016 and 2017 to develop its own family-friendly five-year Community Action Plan 2017-2022. The Place Plan for Twechar has been developed as a statement of support for the Community Action Plan and to show where and how community planning partners can support Twechar to achieve its Community Action Plan and address inequality in the area.
