£87,000 funding to support young people in Edinburgh and Glasgow

Publication date

A new project to support care experienced young people in Edinburgh and Glasgow has been given the go-ahead with a funding windfall of £87,000. 

The money has been awarded to local charity Move On to set up a peer mentoring service in Edinburgh, based on their already successful model in Glasgow.

Move On’s peer mentoring project works by enabling mentors and mentees to meet up regularly, developing a sense of trust and mutual respect as they do so.  As the relationship progresses, they set goals together in areas such as education or employment, and work towards achieving them.
