Rise aims to provide employability opportunities in catering and hospitality for female refugees and asylum seekers in Glasgow to equip, empower and enable them join Scotland’s workforce. Whilst operating as a ‘pop-up’ restaurant, their activity involves three primary objectives:

  • Equipping women with the skills and confidence that they need to enter the workplace
  • Empowering women by giving them ownership in the direction of their training and in the production of food and menus
  • Enabling women to integrate into their communities and join the workforce to support themselves and their families

Rise:Glasgow offers refugee and asylum seeker women in Glasgow work experience and accredited training in catering, hospitality and spoken and written English. Through this, they aim to see women’s confidence increase, regain purpose and their dignity in the knowledge that they have something to offer by making the food they love, from their culture and country.

Rise:Glasgow aims to be a community hub, where people from every ethnicity, culture and background can find friendship, belonging and ownership by sharing in the making and eating of food.
