We are partnering with Clarion Futures to provide more support for the community and help them into employment.

Clarion Housing Group’s charitable foundation, Clarion Futures, has helped more than 15,000 people into work since its launch in 2017.

In 2021-22, they worked with their partners across the country to help 3,717 people into work. They also supported more than 5,000 people into training to prepare them for employment.
Their trained specialists work to help their residents and non-residents by:

  • Giving careers advice

Personalised support packages help people overcome obstacles and gain the skills they need. Clarion helps people to enter or return to the workplace and fulfil their potential.

Employers have a vital role in their jobs and training programme. They provide work placements, apprenticeships, and job opportunities.
