Resources

We hope the information we provide in factsheets, reports and films will enable you get on with making changes and improvements. All feedback welcome.

Lockdown walking and cycling routes

This easy-to-use booklet maps out three great southside walking or cycling routes. It also identifies landmarks to look out for.

How to set up a tool library

We have put together a guide for how to start a tool library. This explains clearly how to build up a stock of tools, how to lend them out safely and how to make it a success, like the Southside Tool Library.

Flexible Power Community

Knowing that the grid is changing, we looked at how flexible a cross section of Southsiders could be with electricity at home and analysed the results.

Borrow don’t buy – 5 tool library case studies

The Southside Tool Library asked borrowers about their experience of using tools from the library at home. This 8 page booklet contains 5 case studies of users.

The Croft booklet

Find out how five of our Crofters found their experience of adopting a bed for the 2017 growing season.

Development of a community asset on Glasgow’s southside

We asked local residents what they wanted from a community asset and we looked about at all the possible vacant units and land which could be converted in to a community asset. Our findings are in the report.

Guide to delivering home energy audits

This guide explains how we engage residents in thinking more about energy use in their home, deliver an audit in the home and relay our findings to support residents to consume less energy. There are also case studies and a sample checklist of actions we may recommend.

Energy case studies

This booklet includes a collection of five case studies which explain how South Seeds has helped residents save energy or sort out energy bills. We were able to deliver this work to save energy and save carbon through funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge fund.
