YMCA Tayside’s Y Innovate digital hub hosts six-week courses for small groups of young people in primary seven who find the school environment challenging. Youth workers focus on young people’s interests to engage them in internet safety discussions.

YMCA Tayside is an inclusive Christian organisation established in 1995 and is open to young people of all faiths and none, encouraging them to belong, contribute and thrive. Although part of an international movement that started in1844, YMCA Tayside is autonomous and seeks to serve local communities by focusing primarily on the needs of its young people.

Their vision is to support young people to build a positive future through their engagement of opportunities that develop the mind, body, and spirit.

Support is open to young people aged 8-25 and nurtures their progression and development by building positive, trustful relationships with the purpose of having “somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to”. Their youth work services have a particular focus on young people who face multiple and complex barriers to economic, social and education inclusion.
