Stepping Stones is a partnership youth work project that supports young people aged 10-18
in the Scottish Borders, with the aim of improving their emotional health and wellbeing, and
Our worker supports each young person based on
their personal needs, helping them to achieve their full potential and to develop skills through
non-formal education activities within a universal youth work setting.
Our participation work allows young people to work towards accreditation or awards such as Youth Achievement Awards, Dynamic Youth Awards, Hi-5 Awards alongside recognising Volunteering through the Saltire Award. They can do this through participation in activities offered by TD1 or through what they do outwith.
We support young people to develop soft skills and team working skills through their engagement in small groups, which help them for their future.
We work with young people on the street through our streetwork project, twice a week youth workers will engage with young people in the community on the street and support their needs through information, advice and support.
We use our own mini-bus to travel around the town and offer young people different options from being on the street.
