Aim:

This is an initiative run by Clued Up which aims to support young people to achieve their employability potential. We support young people aged 16-25 years affected by substance use to find their own path into education, employment or training

Interventions:

Drop in Provision – Kirkcaldy, Levenmouth and Benarty. The drop in environment allows young people to access the service without the need for an appointment. Sessions are designed around young people’s needs and include goal setting and action planning; dealing with interviews; CV and application writing; benefits information; visits from mainstream and other organisations that can offer specific inputs focusing on possible progression opportunities.

One to one support - We will work with young people affected by substance use using a key worker approach, placing young people at the centre of an integrated package of support. Each young person will have an individual work plan designed to address their needs and will work together towards a unique set of outcomes. There are no time constraints on the length of time someone can work with us however outcomes and achievements will be reviewed and monitored.

Group work – specific programmes focusing on cooking, adult basic education, personal development and other bespoke programmes which are delivered in conjunction with our partners.

Project Outcomes:

  • Increase employability prospects of young people affected by substance misuse
  • To improve participant’s self-confidence, self-esteem and aspirations.
  • To reduce substance misuse and high risk behaviours.
  • To reduce participant’s barriers to work and increase life chances.
  • To increase young people involvement in mainstream employability services.
  • To increase young people’s work related skills e.g. time keeping, good attendance, etc.
