We value our partnership with SCYD and appreciate the support they provide for our young people. SCYD provide engaging, universal youthwork experiences and activities along with supporting work around educational engagement, employability and diversity. Partnerships work when organisations have shared goals and commitment to ensuring positive outcomes and that describes well the partnership between SCYD and Blairgowrie HS.
This year Rattray and SCYD have worked in close partnership to help support our transition programme for children moving from Primary School to High School. The team have led whole school assemblies and lunch time clubs, looking at themes that help to build both community and resilience. The team have shown their commitment to our young people in their flexible and “let’s work together” approach.
As Scotland’s national careers service delivering information, advice and guidance to individuals of all ages across the country SDS frequently relies on the support of local partners to ensure that we can respond to the needs of our customers in a timely and flexible way. Our Careers Advisers have been working with SCYD for many years and really value the support they give us to meet our shared goals.
Christopher has been coming to SCYD for about 4 years. This has helped with his socialising as he often stayed home and played on his computer but now he enjoys meeting people and joining in. He loves going on the trips and doing team building activities.
SCYD is a great for hanging out with friends. If it wasn’t around I would possibly just stay at home. It has helped me to be a calmer person.
I have been coming to SCYD for over 5 years now. I have loved meeting new friends. I would most likely just be at homing playing on my PlayStation or footy if I didn’t go to SCYD.
SCYD has been a good place to relax and chill out with my mates. The people who work here are sound!
