Family firm support
Our Family Firm team work closely with Education, 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.
We have dedicated Employability and Skills officers linked to each secondary school. Officers meet with care experienced young people, 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 - "The Family Firm Team really helped me to build the confidence and find out what type of employment I would like. I am going to be starting a placement with the South Ayrshire Council's Champions Board soon and I am really excited about this. I don't think I would have been able to this without the support from my worker"
