Friends Of The Glen

The success of The Glen’s programs is built of the strength of our community partners and supporters – Friends of The Glen. There are various ways organisations can support our program :

1. Probono Work

It’s not all always about hard work and technical issues though. We are passionate about breaking down barriers and sharing real-life stories from our clients. It’s important to have some fun and we are always up for a game of touch footy with our corporate partners!

2. Employment Partners

We are constantly looking for new employment partners to support our transition clients back into employment, through work experience then potentially a paid job. The clients that The Glen refers to employment partners are clients that need an opportunity or a hand up along their journey, these clients could need the opportunity for a number of reasons and could include the following :

  • The clients may have never worked and therefore has no experience within the workforce (In this case the client would need to be job ready before starting the program). This may include attitude and skills training before the work experience program begins.
  • The client may have self-confidence issues and the program is about building confidence and skills.
  • Has skills and just needs an opportunity to get back into the work environment. The experience invaluable in reintroducing clients to the work force and will assist in future job applications after it is placed on the resume that they have worked with you.

3. Community Organisations

The strength and success of The Glen’s program is owed to the various community organisations who provide their time, services and expertise to The Glen. This includes :

  • Relationships Australia
  • Lifeline
  • Gambling Solutions
  • Gosford Narara Financial Counselling
