Darkwood Crew is a constituted group of local residents who have a very clear aim of ‘helping Ferguslie flourish’ with a strong environmental ethos, focusing on 5 key areas
#FoodInsecurity #FuelPoverty #Isolation&Loneliness #MentalHealthPositivity #TheLocalEnvironment
Our work is underpinned by a belief that our local environment holds the key to addressing a number of historical social problems in the community including, but not limited to, health inequalities, long term unemployment, poor educational attainment, poor mental health, social exclusion & isolation.
Darkwood Crew offers their firm support to proposals led by The Poverty Alliance in a bid to drive down rocketing levels of poverty in Renfrewshire. We lend our voice and support in a national newspaper once again to raise this important issue.

Darkwood Crew have become one of 18 anchor groups in Scotland who support Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Upstream Battle campaign.
The campaign aims to prevent litter from entering the River Clyde and each group undertakes a key role by carrying out regular litter surveys and litter picks along the River Clyde or one of its tributaries.
