What we do
We offer a range of opportunities to enable people to gain experience, skills and confidence and make positive lasting change in their lives.
While our services are as diverse as the individuals we support, our aim is simple – to offer everyone an equal chance to reach their full potential, no matter what barriers they face.
We match volunteer mentors to vulnerable young people aged 14-25 to support them to achieve personal goals, increase their confidence and build their positive social networks.
We match volunteer befrienders with young people aged 16-25 who are making the transition from living in supported accommodation to managing their own tenancy and living independently.
We deliver structured programmes of advice and information workshops in schools for vulnerable young people.
We offer a range of employability courses in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Our social enterprises, FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland and Move On Wood Recycling, give people the opportunity to gain practical work experience.
FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland
Our FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland social enterprise saves surplus food from the food and drink industry and redistributes it to frontline organisations feeding the most vulnerable people in the community.
Move On Wood Recycling
Our Move On Wood Recycling social enterprise collects waste wood from across Edinburgh and the Lothians and sells quality timber and upcycled furniture.
Literacy and numeracy service
Our literary and numeracy service helps people feel more confident in their reading, writing, spelling, number work, IT skills and oral communication.
Money and debt advice service
Our money and debt advice service offers people the support they need to manage debt and be more financially stable and confident.
