Education & Employment

Poor outcomes in education are a core indicator of an individual experiencing poverty in later life.

The Gowanbank Hub Crisis Support Center believe that employment is one of the best protections against poverty, deprivation, and Social Isolation.

By supporting  individuals to engage and progress through education into working life  will play an integral part in reducing the risk of individuals experiencing poverty in later life.

“The Hub Crisis Support Center worked with my children’s school and the education board to help me get my kids back to school after two years because of bullying. My volunteer support worker even helped me get a grant to cover new uniform.”
