SUPPORT 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. 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.

2. 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.

3. Corporate volunteering

We have a successful history of working with the corporate and government sectors.

We also work closely with global law and accounting firms – Allens Linklaters, Minter Ellison, Clyaton Utz and KPMG. These firms provide invaluable expertise in their respected fields. We are very grateful for their advice on organisational issues and welcome any corporate partners to support us.

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!

We have hosted secondees and volunteers from various organisations. You have all made a contribution to what The Glen is today and we are truly grateful for all your time.

The Glen works with over 50 stakeholders throughout the year and as an organisation, we are recognised as the “fabric” of the Central Coast community. We sincerely thank all our community partners, probono supporters for helping us achieve great outcomes for our clients.
