Mon 27th January 2020
Minister for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Will Quince, visited the Rangers Charity Foundation last week during a tour of Glasgow.
Will Quince MP and his team were met by Foundation Director, Connal Cochrane, Senior Community Executive, Jamie Duncanson and Senior Communicatrions Execuitive, Rachel Cummins, before being presented with an overiew of the charity’s work.
Given his work with the DWP, Quince took a specific interest in hearing about the Foundation’s employability programmes and ended his visit by presenting certificates to particpants of the Get Strarted with Rangers programme in partnership with with The Prince’s Trust.
Quince said: “Over the past couple of days in Glasgow, I haven’t met a charity or voluntary organisation that hasn’t sung the praises of the Foundation and the support that they get is incredible.
“I’ve been learning today about the employability work that they do, and from a Department of Work and Pensions perspective, we’re so grateful for this work and i’m looking at ways in which we can better support them for those mutual objectives.
“Using football as a hook to engage young people in training and employment is innovative and brilliant. It’s been a truly inspirational visit to the Rangers Charity Foundation, to meet everyone and learn about their Get Started With Rangers project in partnership with the Prince’s Trust.
“I want to pass on my huge thanks to you, the fans of Glasgow Rangers, because without your support both for the Club and Foundation they couldn’t do all this valuable work, so thank you very much.”
