Tamfourhill Tenants and Residents Organisation (SCIO) are a long- established local organisation who have embedded strong relationships, connections and reliability throughout the local area. The Tamfourhill Tenants and Residents Organisation is widely recognised as a provider of quality and relevant community services and activities which are focussed upon tackling poverty and isolation, building community cohesion and supporting significant community development projects like: the Roman Play Park, the Tamfourhill Food pantry, operating weekly Youth provisions, the Our Place Camelon and Tamfourhill Project and an outdoor learning and environmental project based within local woodland.
The new Safer Streets Youth Action Project is closely aligned to the local Community Safety Strategy: Camelon & Tamfourhill will be a safer, happier and more attractive place to live which was developed through the Our Place Camelon and Tamfourhill Project which is also managed by the Tamfourhill tenants and residents Organisation. (TTRO)
The TTRO now require a suitability experienced and trained Youth Outreach Worker to support the work of this new Youth Project and its development throughout Camelon and Tamfourhill. The Post is initially for 3 years and is funded through the Falkirk Community School Fund and the TTRO have also been successful in securing a further package of match funding for this period. The Youth Outreach worker will work closely with the Youth Development Worker and will be excepted to support the Twilight Sports programme which is delivered throughout Camelon and Tamfourhill on Friday nights, take part in a programme of streetwork and engagement with young people in public spaces, support the delivery of activity programmes and accredited groupwork and encourage young people to have a voice and contribute to local community development projects, including aspects of the community safety strategy and Community Climate Action Plan, and also support the weekly youth provisions that operate from the Tamfourhill Community Hub. Partnership working will be essential to this Post and the delivery of local youth work should maximise existing services, facilities and opportunities and encourage young people to make greater and a more positive use of local outdoor resources like public parks, the canal network and other open green spaces.
