Salvesen Mindroom Centre

Charity registered in Scotland SC030472

We want all children and young people with learning difficulties to lead a fulfilling life. We support them and their families to achieve this. Our multi-disciplinary team have the experience to inform and provide evidence-based procedures and tools to help families and professionals. Our goal is to empower children and young people and their families with the skills and confidence to have a real say in decisions about their lives.

Current opportunity

Volunteers support young people (14-18 years old) making the transition into adulthood. They give just 1 to 3 hours a week to meet 1-to-1 with young people, usually in a school near them, for up to an hour a week each over half a school year. They accompany a young person to complete 'Future Me', a programme designed by the Salvesen Mindroom Centre. Young people following the programme develop a clearer idea of what they want for themselves, improve their self-esteem, and have more confidence in choosing and taking their next steps as they make the transition from high school into adult life.
