Community Link

Also in Give Kids a Chance:

Give Kids a Chance is a community project, co-ordinated and managed by Aberdeen City Public Health Team.  Young people involved with Give Kids a Chance are referred and supported by link workers from Community Learning and Development, Social Work, Schools, charities and voluntary organisations and independently managed community projects.

In Aberdeen the project operates predominantly in the seven priority areas of the city: Torry/Tullos, Powis, Fersands/Printfield, Middlefield, Kincorth, Seaton and Woodside.  Young people attending St Machar, Northfield, Torry or Kincorth Academies and their associated primary schools can also be referred to the project.  There are 100 places available to young people in Aberdeen.

Twenty places are currently available in Fraserburgh and 15 places in Peterhead.   Young people attending Fraserburgh and Peterhead Academies and their associated primary schools can be referred.

In Moray the referral process is slightly different with the project available to all young people in the local authority area but only 20 places are available.

To obtain more information or a referral form please contact heather.wilson2@nhs.net

 Give Kids a Chance provides what many other young people take for granted - the opportunity to get involved in a hobby or activity.  Referrals can only be accepted from professionals or others working to support families and young people who are also expected to provide encouragement and support for young people to become fully involved in their chosen Give Kids a Chance activity.

The choice of activites is driven by the young people themselves. Every effort is made to accommodate individual requests, although every activity has to be sustainable on a long term basis.
