MSP for Clydesdale, Aileen Campbell, has warmly welcomed news that the South Lanarkshire based Forth Community Resource Centre Steering Group has secured over ?42,000 in funding.

Coming from the Scottish Government’s People and Communities Fund, the award is to be used for the Rural Community Working Initiative, a scheme dedicated to helping people find work. The Initiative runs Work Clubs in rural areas, providing training opportunities and access to the internet.

Further funding from The Renewable Energy Fund and South Lanarkshire Rural Partnership LEADER Programme has also been welcomed by the Initiative, ensuring more high quality opportunities for locals looking for jobs.

Aileen Campbell MSP for Clydesdale has welcomed the news, commenting:

"It is delightful to see the project can now reach out to more people thanks to this funding.

"With many vacancies now being advertised online, the funding boost is a massive help for job hunters in rural communities of Clydesdale, providing more people with access to the internet and computers.

"Self-esteem, skills training, confidence and access to technology are just some of the many benefits gained by those participating in the Initiative, all giving locals better chances to compete in today’s job market."
