Derek Mackay MSP Visits Glasgow Together Site
Below is an excerpt from Scottish Construction Now!
Cabinet secretary for finance and constitution, Derek Mackay MSP, visited the site at Nithsdale Road yesterday to speak with the team responsible for the refurbishment project.
Commenting on the work of Glasgow Together, Mr Mackay said: “The work of Glasgow Together is a great example of the kind of innovative partnership that can have a positive social impact whilst also delivering clear economic benefits, despite the tough economic climate, particularly in the construction sector."
“This model already has a successful track record around the UK, providing ex-offenders with a pathway back into meaningful work whilst supporting a commercially sustainable business model which is delivering high quality and affordable housing.”
