DRCET was born in 2004 to help the people of Yoker, Scotstoun and Whiteinch in the West of Glasgow implement their 20 year Environmental Vision (YSW_EnvVision_EasyRead_Dec2002, 500kb, pdf) Since that time we have gone on to deliver a wide range of projects and services, many of which have contributed to the Environmental Vision. In addition we now operate over a wider area which incorporates part of the North West sector of the Glasgow Community Planning Partnership.
