We’re thrilled to say we’ve been awarded a £27,000 grant from the John Lewis Foundation! This donation will support our project to help 30 vulnerable people to gain practical skills, experience and confidence that will transform their employment prospects.

The project, based at our FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland warehouse, will provide the opportunity for people to achieve a combination of accredited training, practical skills and soft skills, as well as support with literacy and numeracy and money and debt advice, where needed.

Similar projects in other cities have shown that the provision of functional, technical and on the job skills really empowers people to tackle underlying barriers which have often held them back for years. With the support of the John Lewis Foundation, we’ll be able to provide this life changing support in Glasgow.

A huge thank you to the John Lewis Foundation for its support!
