    What a Friday it was finding out I was the winner of The Scottish Government’s Social Innovation Competition delivered by Firstport and awarded The Young Social innovator award 2018! The competition delivered by Firstport was a Scottish wide competition for people to pitch their social enterprise ideas that involve young people and aim to create social impact. On Friday I had the chance to eat miniature food and talk to a room full of social entrepreneurs from all over the

    I was recently in Madrid for 30 days during the month of July, volunteering with Achieve More Scotland as part of programme. I’ve been home for just over a month and I feel this is the best time to reflect on my experience and share it with other people who may want to do something similar in the future.

Summer Camp is coming to an end and we have decided to make the best of our last few days together with a big Dance Show at the main stage at Glasgow Green. All the kids have been working hard over the last weeks to put together a great performance with 16 dances. The show will start at 11.45am, families and friends are welcome to this special day. Here are some pictures from Summer Camp at St.Rochs:  

It has been a very busy couple of weeks for our Fundraising and Marketing team: 50 walkers donned the bright green Achieve More T-shirt and a kilt to walk the Glasgow Kiltwalk on 29th April, the following week we held our annual #AimHigh Charity Ball, with over 160 supporters in attendance. These events are vital to raise much needed unrestricted funds to enable us to develop and deliver new and responsive services for our participants. Another key aspect of our

Up and down the country thousands of young people have been left feeling slightly betrayed and majorly underestimated.  Many feel that the voting  age should be lowered to 16 everywhere and not just in certain cities. I myself strongly believe that we as young people should be able to influence key decisions that affect us directly.It is very important for young people to feel like they can express their views and to feel like their voices are heard.  Its very common
