We provide support to young people in our communities experiencing the most challenging circumstances: young people who are socially isolated or side-lined, who are living in disadvantage and whose voices are not heard. We have a vision of seeing young people transformed through creativity, community, confidence and finding their voice. In order to reach this vision, we work towards the following outcomes:
Young people develop creative skills Young people have access to creative and cultural opportunities Young people develop friendships and supportive relationships Young people are more meaningfully engaged in their community Young people increase in confidence and wellbeing Young people are more resilient and optimistic for the future Young people find it easier to express themselves Young people's voices are heard and acted on
We run programmes across Renfrewshire but have focussed work in Paisley, Linwood & Johnstone, as well as online programmes, in response to Covid19. Our main programme streams are: Drop Ins, Arts Workshops, Youth Voice and Festivals & Events.
