Clanrye Group




Clanrye Group was established in 1982 and since that time has been providing quality training, accredited qualifications and employment opportunities to individuals furthest removed from the labour market to tackle disadvantage and improve skills and employment for all, especially those from marginalised groups.

Clanrye’s vision is that the region will benefit from a highly skilled and dedicated team with excellent support for those in the community who need it most. Participants are skilled up to compete for jobs, utilising social enterprise as a key component.
