Make It Work Programme

Glasgow Libraries and Glasgow North Regeneration Agency present a new programme of workshops to give assistance in gaining employment to the people of the north of Glasgow.
Make it Work is a new modern approach to the Job Clubs previously  run by the Benefits Agency taking a more holistic approach by signposting opportunities for improving health, learning and recreation rather than simply concentrating on gaining employment.
Make it Work takes place in Royston Library every Wednesday at 1pm
