Removing barriers

In our bimonthly focus on the work of CrossReach, which is this year celebrating 150 years of social care in the Church of Scotland, Jackie Macadam looks at an innovative project to develop opportunities in caring for young people.

CROSSREACH is known for its innovation and forward thinking when it comes to its projects and programmes for people of all ages and in every part of the country.

One recent project has begun yielding great results and is giving people who might be trapped in a qualification gap, a chance to get on the ladder to success.

The Get into Care with CrossReach programme is an innovative partnership with the Prince’s Trust, an organisation created to help unemployed people access work and skills to get into work.

Craig Wilson, Senior Head of Programmes at the Prince’s Trust Scotland, said: “We are big believers in strong partnership working in order to support more young people throughout Scotland.

“The social care sector offers stable and fulfilling careers, but young people aren’t always aware of these opportunities. Our partnership with CrossReach is offering young people the chance to not only learn about this sector, but learn the essential skills needed, gain experience, improve their confidence and have access to jobs.
