Youth Services

    Last week we welcomed the news from the Business, fair Work and skills Minister for Scotland, Jamie Hepburn that the Scottish Government is prioritising fairness in the heart of the government’s skills policy. With youth employment in Scotland higher than the UK average it is something we believe Scotland should be proud of, as the nation is proving that providing programmes that offer a sense of self  respect, agency and ownership benefits individuals and communities in the long run to deal

In aid of International Women’s Day 2019 we decided that we would let our young people speak up about what this year’s theme, Balance For Better means to them. Today you will see some pictures from some of the children and young people who use our services having their say on the gender balance they want to see for a better world. We believe that is not a gender specific issue but an issue of policy, government and business and

  It’s our 10th year of operation working with young people?  As with any milestone, it’s an opportunity to reflect, reflect on the journey, the successes, the failures, the young people and the future.   Background to charity creation My own journey to the charity sector has been an interesting one. I’m the classic ‘Gamekeeper turned Poacher’; 22 years working in the Public Sector before moving into the Third Sector. I’ve been a Youth Worker for most of my adult life! I’ve seen fashions

    The Rezzy Achieve more Scotland carried out their largest residential yet, this involved  21 young people being given the opportunity to take part in outward bound activities such as ; abseiling , hill walking , canoeing , team building activities and camping.  During the 5 days, we went through many ups and downs, and found more activities challenging than others, but with each other at hand we encouraged all to keep pushing and conker our ‘chimp brain’.

We had over 150 kids every day playing sports and making friends, it was definitely one of our favourites. We have also sent 21 young people to a Residential at Loch Eil for a week. Keep an eye to

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.

  When I was told that I had been nominated for the Diana award I didn’t know how to feel because I had never heard of it up until I got the phone call to say that I had been nominated. Once I realised how big being nominated for this award is that’s when I know it was a privilege to be involved in this award. I found out that I had one the award I was over in Malawi I didn’t know what

Throughout previous years body image has become an increasingly bigger problem.  Looking back as far as I can remember my generation grew up with celebrities plastered all over tv and magazines. This influence made it incredibly hard to appreciate your body when you think you look nothing like how your “supposed” to.  Over the years social media has only got bigger and more common for young people to use.

In recent years it has been made clear that many of the youth services offered to young people all over the UK have had to face major financial cuts leaving thousands of young people with nowhere to turn.
