What others say about us

"Volunteering at PY is a genuine highlight of my week. The young people we are working with are great! It's great to have an opportunity to get some hands on experience outside my course too." - Volunteer, Roots and Branches

“I feel I’ve gained a lot of confidence over the time I’ve been at PY. I wouldn’t have thought at the beginning I’d be running the hall game, so I was really pleased when the lead worker asked me to.” - Volunteer, Funky Fridays

“For years, PYCP’s 1:1 service allows some of our most vulnerable students a safe and nurturing environment to be themselves without fear of judgment, disappointment or upset. The opportunity for the pupil to create a relationship with an additional trusted adult is invaluable and works wonders for their confidence, resilience and self-esteem. They feel supported and know that their 1:1 worker understands them and how they feel and will work with them on strategies to help them cope better with all of the difficulties life can throw at them. Many of our young people are highly anxious but look forward to, and often rely heavily upon, their sessions with their worker to help them feel at ease. I could make countless referrals to the 1:1 service and still find more young people who could benefit from their vital input.” Guidance teacher, Craigroyston High School
