Aberlour Futures – Dumfries and Galloway

Overview

We help children and young people (aged 11-18) who need extra help with education. Many of those we support have challenging behaviour, as a result of the complicated emotions they experience.

who we help

Our young people may have experienced trauma in their lives and feel that no-one understands them. Some have a chaotic home life, and may be at risk of being taken into care, far away from their own community. Others are already living in care, and experiencing the complicated feelings that come with it. All of these factors can cause a lot of stress and worry. In turn, this can make school a difficult environment to be in.

how we help with education

Aberlour Futures – Dumfries and Galloway allows young people to get help with education, by encouraging them to take control. Our young people’s workers give them the chance to shape the style and content of their education. For example, they can choose to get help with school work, alongside support with practical skills, activities, sports and arts and crafts.

We have three bases – in Stranraer, Dumfries and Annan.

If you would like to refer a child or young person, please contact us at the relevant base using the details below.
