Help@Hand OFFERS SUPPORT TO SCHOOL LEAVERS WITH ADDITIONAL SUPPORT NEEDS

The 10th Help@Hand event for young people in Perth and Kinross with additional support needs who are looking towards the transition to work, further education and independent living, is being held later this month in Perth.

The 2017 drop-in event will again take place at the National Christian Outreach Centre on Riggs Road, between 10.30am and 6pm on Wednesday 27 September. A diverse range of local organisations will be represented and provide information on job seeking, training, further education and other options.

A new addition to the programme for the 10th anniversary event is an evening session for parents and carers to discuss the kinds of support available for their child’s post-school transition.

Help@Hand is open to any young person 14 years old and over, who may need additional help with their learning and would like ideas for when they leave school, and their parents/carers.

Parents/carers wishing further information should please contact Education and Children’s Services on 01738 472291.
