CashBack: Gateway to Employment
Delivered by Celtic FC Foundation and funded by Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities initiative, Gateway to Employment is a bespoke employability and personal development project.
Aimed at young adults aged between 16 and 25, the project targets individuals who have offended, are at risk of (re)offending, or live in an area with a high risk of crime.
Taking place at Celtic Park across blocks of 10 weeks, the project itinerary includes a host of interactive employability and personal development workshops encompassing individual and group activity.
Aiming to affect habitual change, participants also benefit from a rigorous curriculum of physical activity and health-focused initiatives.
Throughout, Celtic FC Foundation work in partnership with a multitude of referral and external agencies to ensure we are delivering the best possible outcomes for participants.
At the conclusion of each project intake, participants attend a Celebration Event at Celtic Park, showcasing their achievements and voicing their ambitions for the future.
Working directly with individuals from difficult backgrounds, the project addresses root causes of poverty, ultimately aiming to reverse cyclical patterns of inequality constraining individuals and their families.
