We leave you here the words from Ana talking about her volunteering experience in Scotland. She was working with Achieve More Scotland participating in a youth led project from the 29th of June to the 20th of July of 2019. This project has been funded by the Erasmus+ programme. “An incredible and unbelievable experience, thanks Scotland” I describe myself as… A solidary person, empathetic and happy that takes care of her environment and her loved ones. I can’t live without… Art, animals, nature and cactus. Why did I decide to have

We finish #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek with a last testimony from one of our staff members who shares his experience and struggles with body image. How body Image affects men? I think body image affects men in different ways. Especially in society today with social media etc. Portrayed to have 6 packs and stuff which can lead to people being depressed anxious constantly. What can be done for men struggling with this? There is help out there to speak to people if they are struggling but I know that

Well what a campaign it was, thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to our daily case studies from young people, youth workers and local partners who have all benefited from Erasmus+ via our social media and thank you to those who caught our national coverage on the Nine News last Monday (we will showing this again next week, if you missed it).  The last two weeks seen our message that no access to Erasmus+ will have a long term negative

As we make our way through the ongoing headlines, mostly involving pushing the telly from room to room in the office to find the looming BREXIT in bold black writing, we are making our views on Brexit heard in the incoming weeks. We want to showcase the invaluable work of Erasmus+ in Scotland, led by youth organisations in some of Scotland’s most deprived communities.

    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.

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

    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’. On the Thursday night

We are already two months into 2019 and It has been, so far, a busy and fun year. We started off with February Camp which was a good opportunity to celebrate our 10th anniversary with all the kids and young people. 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 pressure of not being able to afford materialistic things at this time of year and in some cases all year round,  effects young people quite a bit  because there is this pressure put on them that they have to be trendy and have expensive items , when this life style isn’t  affordable it leads to self-esteem issues and bullying.

In my opinion, our environment is now beginning to turn toxic and people are turning on the people who have the guts to be different.   In my opinion if you aren't the same as everyone else you are set aside and castaway and in some cases, bullied.
