Family Firm Support

Our Family Firm team provide an enhanced support for young carers or people who are care experienced, the team work closely with Education, South Ayrshire's Children's Houses, Social Work and our Champions Board to support young people to progress into employment or further education. The team build long-term relationships, offering on-going support to help young people sustain their positive destination.

In-school work

We have a dedicated Thriving Communities Officer linked to each secondary school. The officer meets with care experienced young people and young cares, in the senior phase, to establish relationships and discuss early and long-term transition planning prior to them leaving school. This is done in partnership with Education and Skills Development Scotland.

Annie - "Thriving Communities really helped me to build confidence and find out what type of employment I would like. I am now working as a home carer; I don't think I would have been able to this without the support from my worker"
