Working in partnership with Foundation Scotland ensures that the David Doig Foundation meets its objectives by awarding grants to those who need most support.
Click on the following PDF for a summary of how the Foundation is helping over 4000 children and young people in Scotland to reach their full potential (figure updated March 2021):
The supported projects include working with school pupils and young people with experience of homelessness to supporting those struggling with reading and writing, multiple projects supporting young people into training, volunteering, and employability support to help increase their career chances, and provision of specific additional educational opportunities, such as specialist music classes and opportunities to learn outdoors, for children and young people facing challenges to allow them to reach their full potential.
The impact of the grants has been far reaching, with many of the projects supported even able to adapt and continue their important support to young people through the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. The following case studies and updates help to bring this support, made possible by the support of the David Doig Foundation, to life.
