WSHA partner with WorkingRite

WorkingRite assists school leavers in getting their foot in the door of their chosen career regardless of their academic background or previous experience.

Trainees learn in a proper workplace, receive one-to-one meetings, earn a weekly allowance and are given the chance to prove themselves in the real world of work.

WorkingRite recently formed a new partnership with Whiteinch and Scotstoun Housing Association (WSHA).  

Whilst the charity has run activities out of the Whiteinch Centre for many years, the housing association is now taking it over which will evolve it further into a real community hub.  

WorkingRite will work with WSHA as its employability partners, offering placements for young people from the Whiteinch and Scotstoun areas.  

James Ward, CEO of WSHA, said: "The collaboration with WorkingRite allows us to use their expertise and knowledge to help support the aspirations of the next generation of our tenants.  

"WSHA are committed to helping our tenants and the wider community strive for a better standard of living and to assist them them in being able to improve their life chances and opportunities.  

"Partnerships like this are integral to WSHA being able to deliver on our commitment as a community anchor organisation and we look forward to developing our relationship and extending the opportunities available in the future."

Sandy Campbell, WorkingRite founder, added: "Partnering with a housing association, such as WSHA, is an ideal relationship for our work-based mentoring model of training young people.  

"WSHA gives us a local presence that the young people and their families relate to.  

"Over the past decade we have helped over 200 local young people in this area secure the job or apprenticeship that was right for them – with the support of over 100 different local businesses – across all industries and types of employment.  

"With WSHA we feel rooted in the community and this is an amazing community.  

"So much so that last year we moved our national head office from Edinburgh to Whiteinch and are now ourselves tenants of WSHA."
