The Denis Law Legacy Trust provides a number of outreach projects to children and young people living in and around the Aberdeen area – particularly those with high rates of youth offending and anti-social behaviour. Funding from The David Doig Foundation will support the Trust’s Positive Destinations employability initiative, targeting young people aged 16 to 19 in deprived areas of Aberdeen. This two year programme, works with young people at risk of becoming a NEET, preparing them for entering employment. It helps them gain basic skills and qualifications in areas such as first aid, child protection, IT and driving. They will also gain confidence and leadership skills through experience in sports coaching. And with one to one support, identify their desired career path from which a tailored development programme to realise this will then be put in place.
