Change that leads to better lives

Funded Time to Talk for Young People in Scotland

NDTi, in partnership with Children in Scotland and Contact are to launch Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland after receiving funding to explore what works to support young people with additional needs as they transition into adulthood. The project will be coproduced with young people themselves, as well as parents and carers.

The award from The National Lottery Community Fund, made possible by National Lottery players, will fund the Scottish pilot project for 1 year building upon nationally identified needs in Scotland to improve transitions. The project will also be informed by learning from the Time to Talk Next Steps tried and tested model which is already providing virtual support to young people with additional needs in England.

The National Lottery Community Fund, Scotland Chair, Kate Still, said: “National Lottery funding can make amazing things happen in local communities across the country. This project delivered by NDTi in partnership with Children in Scotland and Contact is a great example of community activity in action, showing just what can be achieved when people come together for a common cause or to help others. National Lottery players can be proud to know that the money they raise is helping to support this vital work and to help communities thrive.”

Time to Talk Next Steps Scotland Project Manager, Alice McColl, from NDTi added “I’m thrilled that we now have the opportunity to grow this programme in Scotland. Together with the expertise and learning of our partners and most importantly with the experiences and ideas of young people, we can support more children and young people with their aspirations and inclusion in their communities”
