Working It Out


Part of the 'Work and Worth' strand of the Action Plan, the Working It Out workshop was hosted by then Leader of the Council, Councillor Gordon Matheson, on 25th June 2015.

The Workshop was held by Glasgow City Council's Development and Regeneration Services on behalf of the Poverty Leadership Panel, and was facilitated by Glasgow Homelessness Network on the day.

The Workshop followed a special survey where over 350 people shared their views on finding work, being in work and their hopes for the future. The survey took place because the Panel wanted to know more about people’s experiences of finding or keeping work and about the services and support that is available to help them. In the survey, people told us about the barriers to finding good work, or in making sure that the job they have can be the stepping stone to the job they want.

At the Workshop, over 130 people living and working in Glasgow then came together to explore the survey results and to create new ideas and practical solutions.

The Workshop Report and the results of the survey are available as a PDF document below.
