Action for Children

Creative Futures is offered by Action for Children.  Designed for young adults furthest from the job market, the project is an extra layer in the existing Aiming High programme which supports the most disadvantaged across Glasgow, Inverclyde, East Ayreshire, West Dunbartonshire and South Lanarkshire.   The approach supports those with significant adverse childhood experiences to improve their employability and move into meaningful work.

A grant of £27,000 from the John Lewis Foundation will help promote positive mental wellbeing, build confidence, and permit these young people to gain a recognisable qualification, demonstrating they're ready for the workplace, and setting them on the path to fulfilling lives.
