Sanctuary’s regeneration project creates 40 apprenticeships

Forty Glasgow residents have begun a career in construction at Sanctuary’s £60 million transformation of the city’s Anderston.

The final 206 of the regeneration project’s 540 homes are being built and will be completed by April 2018.

Sanctuary is committed to providing employment and training opportunities for local people at its sites throughout the UK.

We have worked with CCG (Scotland) Ltd, our construction partner in Anderston, to create 40 apprenticeships so Glasgow’s young adults can earn a wage as they learn.

Joiners Jack Gorman, 20, and Lewis Cuthbert, 18, are among twenty CCG apprentices currently helping build Sanctuary’s final 206 Anderston flats. These homes, a mix of social and mid-market rent, will be managed by Sanctuary Scotland.

Sanctuary’s regeneration of Anderston was only possible thanks to grant funding received from Glasgow City Council.
