The Family Firm Programme at East Renfrewshire offers wraparound personalised employability support for our care experienced young people between the ages of 16-25 years old.

What we do

Working in partnership with the Youth Intensive Support Services Team, the service offers practical advice, guidance and upskilling dependent on our young people’s needs and aspirations. Support can include sourcing work placements, taster days and further sector specific training as well as support moving into positive progressions including employment and further education. We work collaboratively with other partners and agencies to ensure that our young people are supported with their employability and have access to opportunities.
