Donate £10 a month to ensure a child’s bad start in life won’t lead to a bad end.
“Many grow up feeling they have no stake in their future. They look around, all they see is a life of drugs, drink and violence” says Johnny, Aberlour Youth Worker.
Morgan was one such young person. She started life in a home with a lot of difficulties. School became problematic and she was in danger of get caught up in drink, drugs and violence. Yet with support from Aberlour, today, she’s the first person in her family to go to university.
There are thousands more children and young people in Scotland who like Morgan have faced a bad start in life. We need your help to avoid a bad end. With your regular donation to Aberlour, young people can be helped and supported to reach their full potential.
