Head To Work

Head To Work is a project which utilises a “youth work” approach to engaging 15–24-year-olds who are living in employment deprived areas, unemployed and at risk of offending/re-offending.

This project focuses on their:

  • health and wellbeing
  • building routines and confidence
  • team work
  • money management/financial fitness
  • volunteering
  • a project to suit their aspirations and interests.

Previous participants have been involved in gardening, graffiti art, dance, walking challenges, etc. and participants can also work towards a range of qualifications. e.g., SQA Money Management, Personal Development Award, etc.
