History Of ONC

The company was established in 1993 by a group of local people from two Church of Scotland congregations. The Orbiston Neighbourhood Centre was opened in 1995 to provide a base for services and initiatives seeking to address problems of social exclusion and deprivation in the Bellshill community.
