This book tells 'the story' of what is today called the Clydebank Independent Resource Centre (CIRC). It has been written because people working on Oxfam's UK Poverty Programme in Scotland came to the view that a work telling the Centre's story could make an important contribution to the development of genuinely community-based responses to the experience of poverty in contemporary Scotland.
