Make it Your Own secures Young Start funding for care-experienced young people

We are delighted to have secured Young Start funding from the National Lottery Community Fund for our creative tenancy sustainment project Make it Your Own!

Young Start has pledged £90,149 over three years to work with care-experienced young people in Edinburgh, Glasgow, North Ayrshire and Renfrewshire.

Our artists will be offering one-to-one and group creative sessions with young people aged 14-25 who have experience of fostering, kinship care or residential care.

Participants will take part in workshops on interior design, decorating and making items for those home.

The aim is that those in new tenancies will gain new practical skills and make their new home somewhere that reflects their personality and feels truly theirs.

For more about recently-announced Young Start funding, please visit their website.
