WorkingRite At A Glance
WorkingRite is a multi-award winning Scottish charity transforming the lives of young people (16-24) who can’t find a route into work.
Each year we help over 200 young people into jobs in Glasgow, Edinburgh/Lothians, Aberdeen city/shire, Moray, Argyll and Kilmarnock.
We target those young people who fall through the cracks in the system. Work is the key for them to realise their worth and potential and see a future of promise. Their dream is a job, a career and a future. We make this happen.
Our programme carefully matches each trainee with a local business or trade that interests them. They work and learn alongside a work-based mentor who nurtures their strengths and addresses their weaknesses.
The result is that 80% of our trainees who complete our programme and their work placement achieve a sustained job or apprenticeship.
In 2018 WorkingRite is celebrating its 10th birthday. Following an earlier pilot WorkingRite was formed as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in 2008 and converted to a charity in 2011.
WorkingRite’s roots are in Leith, which is where the first pilot took place. Our Head Office is still in Leith.
