Trust Jack Foundation (SL)

Charity registered in Scotland SC046334

The Trust Jack Foundation aims to help and support children and young people who have been identified as either suffering from a mental health illness or who are at high risk of suffering from a mental illness. Support is also provided to parents, guardians and carers of the child/young person. Services provided include support groups, counselling, training and a small grant scheme (up to £150) to support young people aged 12-18 to participate in activities that will improve their confidence and self esteem (swimming, music lessons etc.). To access the grant scheme a referral must be made via their GP, social worker, the Youth Counselling Service or Regen:fx Youth Trust. The charity currently delivers a support group and art group at 6pm on Monday evenings at the Superseal Stadium in Hamilton, home of Hamilton Academical Football Club. Crèche facilities are available but the charity asks that that notice is given prior to attending.
