The girls met lots of different girls from companies all over Scotland, from the Highlands to the Borders, and joined in activities with them.
Feedback from the girls was very positive, from “Better than I thought it would be”, to, “It was brilliant!”, and they all had positive things to say about their experiences to parents and friends. The day was a huge success! There were over 900 members at the day, and the girls from St Andrews enjoyed themselves, made new friends, and took part in a number of activities.

The young people flourish - their daily living, social, emotional, coping and relationship skills improve. Often resulting in them also moving on to a positive destination – remain or return to education; volunteering, training or employment. To date 10 young people have transitioned to train as a befriender, the biggest compliment LINK’s service can get. 

Volunteering is often part of the befriender’s mental health recovery, as well as their personal and professional development.The 18 befriending matches, benefiting the young people, volunteers and the local community. The four group social events – pottery workshop; Christmas Meal; Bowbridge Alpacas and annual BBQ. These events provide the young people and volunteers with a safe space to socialise in together. 

10. Step Rock

Host a gala to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the club (see programme which is provided separately). Also promote the importance of swimming as a life- saving skill and give children in the town the opportunity to enjoy the sport. 

The event was a huge success. It gave swimmers the opportunity from different clubs to compete in a friendly and sporting manner. 

11. Strathkinness Playgroup

We were able to get the facilities and resources we needed for our Babygroup from age-appropriate and safe toys to necessary and hygienic nappy changing facilities. Our Babygroup has since grown in popularity and regularly attracts new members. Babies aged 0-12 months and their parent/carer in the local area have benefited from the supportive and friendly environment offered by the group, enhanced by its new resources. The group has greatly helped babies develop and new parents cope with the challenges of parenthood.
