Every term there are Edinburgh College students who are prevented from making the most of their time at college and drop out of their courses, through isolation and poor mental well-being, often triggered by challenging backgrounds or life circumstances. For some, this can leave them heading for a life of unemployment, state dependency, and a lack of fulfilment.
Today, with your help, we can offer those with these extra challenges the practical support that they need to help them step up to the brighter futures that they want and deserve, and fund additional experiences for students to give them a head start into work, and to gain life skills.
If you run or work for a business that could help students and young people, then there are opportunities that will also help promote your business
