Congratulations to our Dundee service and the pupils of Harris Academy
The pupils have won the award for the service as part of the The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative.
The YPI is an active citizenship programme that raises awareness amongst young people about philanthropy and their local community for S2-S6 pupils across Scotland.
Staff from Turning Point Scotland have represented the organisation at schools in the competition, after we were nominated by pupils including John Paul Academy, St.Ninians High School, Paisley Grammar, Renfrew High and Greenfaulds Academy.
But Dundee are the first service to come out on top as winners!
The staff participated in an interview with pupils from Harris academy who then made a presentation to their fellow pupils and judges. The judges were very impressed by the pupils and they won the competition.
The prize of £3000 will go into the service user social fund which subsidises a fortnightly activity club they run, the summer BBQ, Christmas party and outings for people.
