Employability & Welfare

At Cranhill Development Trust we offer a wide range of services, guidance and support to individuals and families, that they may otherwise not be able to access. From access to a computer, combatting digital exclusion, to tailored support in finding employment. We offer vital integration and welfare services, with our people centred approach enabling us to build relationships and support local people.

Click and Connect

The Trust, in partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College, run a click and connect learning centre in the heart of the Cranhill community. This is a space that helps the community get online, using our state of the art digital learning centre. 

With more services going online, this facility offers everyone, no matter their age or ability, access to a computer.

Expert advice is on hand, whether you are looking for a job, going on to further education, need access to online welfare forms, or digital services to pay bills. 

Employment support services

Want a job and unsure where to start? At Cranhill Development Trust we will work with you to advise and guide you to access to training, in work benefit advice, CV and application writing and much more to help you gain the confidence and skills to succeed in finding employment.

One to one support 

Tailored to your needs will focus on your skills, qualities and interests which is aimed to get you up and running for effective job search. Our one-to-one support will range from understanding your benefit commitments, in work benefit advice, getting on-line, how to search and how to apply, CV and application writing, access to training and preparing for employment.

Digital work clubs 

Our digital work clubs are much more frequent and available to access on a drop-in basis. Once you feel ready for effective job search and equipped in applying for employment you can access support more often through attending our digital work clubs.

In work support/after care 

When you leave us, we will offer you continued support to help you settle into employment and keep you right on who and how to inform such as benefits and housing. You may already be in work and need help to access training, advice on benefits or help look for new employment, we can also support you when in employment, education, or training.
