We’d like to make you aware of our new Outreach Service; supporting every 11-26-year-old in Scotland to have a Young Scot National Entitlement Card (Young Scot NEC). We want to promote all Young Scot services and opportunities to young people across Scotland. We are aware you are already working on amazing projects with Young Scot and we would love to work together to support and attend large-scale events and activities aimed at young people and supporting adults across Scotland. Below is some additional information about the service:
The Outreach Team
We have a dedicated Outreach team who travel across Scotland, taking part in events attended by young people and supporting adults. Young Scot staff members across all teams know the importance of face-to-face engagement with young people and so additional staff members can be on hand to support at events to promote specific opportunities and services (such as our new Young Carers Package of entitlements).
What can we offer?
We will work with you to create tailored and relevant content for your event. This can be in any number of formats, including:
- Interactive workshops
- Drop-in activities
- Information stands
We will prioritise those events where we can have an active input on the day.
In addition to our standard resources (banners, give-aways, etc.) we can bring our Young Scot branded vehicles:
- Young Scot 4×4 vehicle – Perfect for outdoor or rural events
- Young Scot 4×4 vehicle & trailer
- Ideal for outdoor events to create a space for workshops/activities/information sessions/etc.
Events we attend:
We are keen to attend events where youth participation is actively promoted. Equality is central to everything we do, and we are particularly keen to increase our engagement with under-represented groups for example minority ethnic, disabled and/or LGBTQ+ young people. We know that there are amazing events all across Scotland every day, and unfortunately we cannot attend them all, we will prioritise events that enable the widest reach, in terms of numbers and specific target young people.
Examples of events we attend include:
National events such as
- Youth Beatz
- Skills Scotland
- Young Carers Festival
- National Youth Work Conference
Local events such as
- Youth conferences
- Staff seminars
- Large scale festival events
