The funding from these organisations help us reach out and support some of most disadvantaged in society and provide them with the skills and qualifications to prepare them for the demanding world of work:
Trades House of Glasgow: Commonweal Fund
"Trades House was established to help protect and support the crafts people of the City. Over the centuries it housed the Trades Free School for boys and girls, worked closely with educational establishments within the City to support initiatives when appropriate and used funds built up following donations from generous benefactors to assist those in need."
