We are delighted to announce the launch of our new REACH mental health support group.
REACH support offers one to one support and group activities for young people aged 14-18 years.
Our key aim is to help REACH participants to feel happier and supported and more confident about the future.
REACH support is available 3 days per week from our Glasgow and Coatbridge Centres. For further information, please contact Jackie on 0141 554 0955 or Tracey or Ann on 01236 433315.
Nico Potter started on our Accelerate Programme on the 26/06/2022. At first Nico’s attendance was very low but then he started to enjoy the Centre and the Project more and made loads of friends. Nico smashed all his Barriers and Personal Goals and completed a Qualification while only being here for a short period of time.
Trainer, Joan said the first time she met him that he was a “wee charmer”. Nico also had amazing problem-solving skills and always tried to motivate others and help his team mates out. He was with us for a short time before going to College but said we helped him “grow in confidence” and “calm down a bit”.
We are wishing Nico the best for his College experience and all the best for what the future holds for him. He has a lovely attitude and personality so we are sure he will do well.
At Right Track we offer a hot breakfast and lunch to all Project participants. Young people are supported to work with staff – mainly Amyjane and Kaitlin, to help make the breakfasts and lunches. Eating is pretty popular, cleaning up is less so!!
This year we have introduced the use of air-fryers and George Forman grills and soup-makers alongside our ever-popular toastie and panini-makers!
Lunches are varied including burgers, wraps, toasties and paninis, pasta, chicken wings, pizza etc and chips of course! Although these are much healthier made in the air-fryer!!
Preparing our own breakfasts and lunches has proven to be much cheaper and ensures that our young people not only have hot food during the day, they are also eating healthier options. Many of our young people struggle with eating in public for a variety of reasons and many have very restricted experiences of eating well. The provision of breakfasts and lunches is of huge value to our young people and a large part of what we do is introducing young people to new eating options. This is a hectic but hugely beneficial part of our days!
Jack Stone has left the programme to take up employment with Scotcast Building Merchants. Jack was very keen for employment and is very excited for his new adventure. We wish him the absolute best and hope he enjoys this opportunity!
Leah Sweeney who was on our CRF Lift Off program but has now moved over to our Launchpad Pre NEET Programme and has now been accepted into College to do Makeup Artistry. During her time at Right Track Leah made new friends and came out of her shell. We wish her the best for the future!!
Nico Potter left us after a short period of time to go to College. Nico came to Right Track with little confidence and low experience but after time, he made new friends and made a good impression on the staff. We wish him the best luck for the future!!!!
