We support children and young people, between the ages 11-18, who are facing issues within mainstream education. We have 3 bases throughout Dumfries and Galloway- Annan, Dumfries and Stranraer.

Our Young People’s Workers help young people with their education, by encouraging them to take control of their learning and help build their confidence.

Successful candidates must be comfortable in a culture based on respect, integrity, innovation and the ability to challenge.
