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 qualified and experienced Youth Development Worker to lead their new Safer Streets Youth Action Project. The Development Post is funded initially for three years through the National Lottery Young Start Fund and will be focussed upon developing new youth work opportunities for young people 8 - 24 years old from Camelon and Tamfourhill. The TTRO has also been successful in securing a further package of match funding covering the next 3 years and the Youth Development Worker will be expected to coordinate and deliver the Safer Streets Youth Project, including: supporting the Part time Youth Outreach Worker and other sessional staff and volunteers, developing and supporting the twilight Sports Programme which is delivered throughout Camelon and Tamfourhill on Friday nights, deliver an outreach programme of youth activities and accredited groupwork, coordinate and undertake a programme of streetwork engagement with young people, support young people’s involvement with relevant community development projects and key aspects of the Community Safety Strategy and the Community Climate Action Plan and also support and develop new opportunities for young people currently attending the weekly youth provisions based at the Tamfourhill Community Hub. Partnership working will be essential to this Youth Project and the delivery of local youth work should maximise existing services, facilities and opportunities and encourage young people to make greater and more positive use of local outdoor resources like public parks, the canal network and other open green spaces.
