Welcome to The Bridges Programmes, a specialist agency that helps refugees, asylum seekers, third country nationals and anyone for whom English is a second language, living in Glasgow, gain meaningful work experience within their field of expertise. We also provide a range of employability and empowerment support to help people get their life back on track.
These pages will give you a feel for what we do, and the expert way we do it. There are sections dedicated to clients and employers and also our on-line resources and publications as well as the latest news about our organisation.
We are a friendly, experienced, team based in Springburn in the North of Glasgow but we do not work alone and have set up many partnerships with other dedicated and respected agencies supporting our client group.
We have been working with European partners, agencies and organisation since 2005, developing and sharing best practice.
At the Bridges Programmes we are dedicated to supporting the needs of, and campaigning for, the rights of refugees, asylum seekers and third country nationals. We hope our site reflects that passion.
