Carol Monaghan, MP for Glasgow North West, added: “I would like to congratulate Tomorrow’s People as they open their third Glasgow ‘Furniture Plus’ store in Knightswood Shopping Centre.
“Since being set up here in Glasgow in 1984, Tomorrow’s People has done important work across the UK, but especially in Scotland.
“For 32 years their programmes have been giving unemployed young people the opportunity to gain new skills, as well as receive help writing CVs and practice their interview skills.
“Projects such as these are crucial in developing skills and building the self-belief needed to enable young people to access different routes into employment.
“I wish the team every continued success for the future, and would also ask any constituents wishing to support their work to consider donating to the store any unwanted items such as furniture, electronics, clothing or children’s toys.”
Tomorrow’s People, which has been running in Glasgow since its launch in 1984, works in local communities to support vulnerable young people to get and keep a job and help youngsters, aged between 16 and 24-years-old, from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them to build up the skills and confidence needed to find sustainable employment.
