Our home for this year is the wonderful Paisley.  Truly embracing its future history, the town’s vision is centred on its world class cultural and heritage assets and has begun an extensive programme of regeneration activity and investment.  

Set within the context of the Paisley Town Centre Heritage Asset Strategy as the regeneration strategy for the next 20 years, this activity contributes to re-establishing Paisley as Renfrewshire’s primary town centre for the benefit of local people and businesses as well as the national and international community.  You will not only hear about Paisley’s Vision for 2026 but step into this living plan, walking through the town’s strategic activity areas that will deliver transformational change.

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in Scotland. More than 3,000 men are diagnosed every year and tragically more than 900 men die. As these numbers continue to rise now is the time to take control.

We are delighted that Scotland’s Towns Partnership has chosen to support Prostate Cancer UK to help fight this disease. We will be working together over the next year to raise awareness across the country, support fundraising and campaign for better health outcomes for Scottish men – a perfect match for their focus on Healthy Towns.

If you or your organisation would like to support our work in Scotland fill out the form here and we'll get back to you. You can join us at our Glasgow March for Men, sign up as one of our fundraisers at the Great Scottish Run or book an awareness stand or talk to raise awareness of prostate cancer among your colleagues and customers. Just get in touch below to start working with us.
