Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland

About the Pilot Programme

Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland provides free support for 45 young people aged 16-25 years in Scotland with additional needs between August and December 2022. It is for young people who are experiencing anxiety, isolation and who have limited or no plans for the future.

Support is delivered by Children in Scotland in partnership with the National
Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) and Contact. Contact are providing support, information and workshops for parents and carers about transition to adulthood. The project is generously funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

What support is available for young people?

Depending on what each young person wants and needs, there are various types of support available. Support will be tailored to each individual.

Trained staff will focus on:

strengths, reducing anxiety, building confidence and countering social anxiety

This project will help young people to think about building independence by providing encouragement and motivation for their future.
