Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

This report presents information about a study that was carried out with key agencies operating in Glasgow that have a role in meeting the needs of young people – either as direct service providers or as umbrella organisations overseeing this process. More specifically, this study examined the extent to which these agencies were ‘equipped’ to meet the needs of young people from black and minority ethnic communities. In tandem, the report highlights the experiences and perceptions of young people and workers from these communities of social care services in Glasgow.
