PYCP is rooted in the local community and is committed to enabling each young person to realise their unique potential and to take a positive role in society.

We urgently need funding!

The children we work with live within the top 5% most-deprived areas of Scotland. We support over 200 children aged 0-11yrs every week – many of whom are very vulnerable, and facing a range of complicated issues.

We help by giving a safe, supportive environment to talk through worries, develop new skills, and above all have fun!

Donate with JustGiving

Please donate or fundraise for us, so that we can help children reach their potential.
