SB Connect Winter 2016

We'll think to that

Five young people have been taking part in a unique project.

Connor Jackson, Jason Riach, Declan McFarlane, Colin Richardson and Charlie Mitchell, all from Hawick, took part in the 10-week programme run by the Council’s Community Learning & Development Team and the Safer Communities Department of Lothian and Borders police.

The project gave them the opportunity to make positive peer relationships by learning new skills, carrying out restorative work and team building exercises.

They attended a number of workshops, including working with Heart of Midlothian FC Youth Programme, Scottish Borders Careers service, Face2Face, and Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service.

They are now in the process of successfully completing their Bronze Youth Achievement Award.
