We’re passionate about people and believe in their ability to positively transform both their own lives and those of the people around them. That’s why, since 2005, we’ve been supporting people to develop their confidence and skills to move into employment, training or education.
We provide a personal plan for each person, including a volunteer placement with a local charity, one-to-one mentoring, and ongoing support from one of our team. And when we say ‘ongoing support’, we mean it! We are there for our people, every step of the way, even after a volunteer placement comes to an end. Because of that, 78% of our volunteers continue on to something better.
The problems faced by people in Scotland are becoming more and more complex. They often have a range of barriers stopping them from realising their potential. We enable people to be a force for good through volunteering, while gaining work experience and an opportunity to develop themselves. Our charity partners get additional skills, talents, and enthusiasm. We enable people to be a stronger part of their local communities and give something back.
