2023 - 2026 Grant Offer


2023 - 2026 Young People Target


Project name: Keeping Families Together & Key to Potential With CashBack For Communities

Age range: 10 – 25 plus siblings and families

Number of Young People Project expects to work with: 417

Cyrenians offer two distinct, but related, values-led and relationship-based interventions to nurture skills and improve resilience amongst young people and families most at risk of spiralling into the justice system. Locally and nationally, our trauma-informed approaches address clear gaps in provision which are ‘tried and tested’, enabling individuals to overcome barriers and break intergenerational cycles of unemployment and involvement with crime.

Strand 1 – Our pioneering Keeping Families Together project will work across Scotland in partnership with Scotland’s five secure centres, adding value and independent expertise, through the provision of skilled Mediation, rights-based whole family support and conflict resolution workshops. Our integrated approach enables young people and families to improve communication, address underlying issues and build stronger, more positive, relationships. (327 young people)

Strand 2 – In Falkirk, Key to Potential will provide skilled person-centred support for some of the most disadvantaged young people in our communities, offering one-to-one outreach and home-visiting careers advice to those who have disengaged from school, and at high risk of becoming involved in antisocial or offending behaviours. Working with local partners, young people will be supported to make informed life choices as they transition from school, enabling them to realise their ambitions by moving onto positive destinations in employment, education or training. (90 young people)

Areas where project will be delivered:

Angus; East Dunbartonshire; East Lothian; Edinburgh City; Falkirk; Midlothian; Renfrewshire; Scottish Borders; West Lothian
