Our Young Women’s project have been funded by The Women’s Fund for Scotland. We offer support to any young women between the ages of 12-21 experiencing crisis in their lives including low confidence, health and wellbeing, crisis pregnancy and becoming a parent, homelessness and unemployment.
Our youth workers help young women access confidential advice, support and advocacy with the aim of moving their lives onto more positive destinations including reengaging with learning and/or employment.
We have a dedicated Young Women’s Worker who works in the Newbattle High School catchment area on Tuesdays and Fridays and can offer one to one sessions and with the support of other youth work staff runs a group for girls on Friday afternoons at Y2K for any young women in S1-6.
