Connect referral criteria

The Connect project is open to young people aged 16 to 19 years old.

Referrals to the Connect Project can be done through a avariety of agencies including schools, Skills Development Scotland, Jobcentre Plus, Social Services or any other agencies working with the young person. Young people can also refer themselves.

Young people can be referred to the project for many different reasons but some of the common issues people would like support with are listed below:

  • Building confidence and self esteem
  • Gaining vocational experience
  • Goal setting and planning
  • Motivation, time keeping and reliability
  • Communication skills
  • Team work and meeting new people
  • Employability skills
  • Independent Living skills
  • Social skills

Once staff at the project have received a referral form young people will be invited to the project to discuss options and how Connect can help in more depth.

If you know of someone that you think would benefit from attending Connect, please complete the Referral form.
