In Alloa, Hawkhill Community Association is hosting the Link Up worker  based from the  Hawkhill Community Centre which lies to the North of its neighbouring communities of the Bowmar and Mar Policies. Sara, the Link Up worker started in January.

The communities of Mar Policies, Bowmar and Hawkhill are located in the South East of Alloa, on the North bank of the Firth of Forth. Alloa, the administrative centre of Clackmannanshire has a population of around 19,000 and there are just less than 900 residents living in South East Alloa. Within South East Alloa there is a fantastic walled garden, many green spaces, a family centre and the new Forth Valley College.
