Other Information

 

Youth Reference Group Recruitment

We are looking to finalise the membership of the Youth Reference Group for the Fa’side Area Partnership

. We have several young people who are interested and would like to make sure that as many young people as possible get the opportunity to participate in the project. We are looking for young people in 1st-3rd  year

at Ross high school (or stay in the Fa’side ward) who would traditionally not get involved in decision making groups within the community. The group will be looking to give a voice to the young people in the area and

link them in with the area partnership. The young people would be initially be attending weekly meetings

and then the frequency might reduce once the group have formed to bi-weekly.

 

To allow as many people as possible to get extra information then we will be holding drop in information

sessions at Recharge (Access from Church Street) over the next 3 Thursdays; 30th November, 7th

December and 14th of December. These sessions will take place between 6.00pm and 8.30pm. If you would

like any more information then feel free to contact Alan Bell on rechargeextra@gmail.com.
