Help at Hand

10th Year Anniversary

Young people with additional support needs (ASN) looking towards the transition to work, further education and independent living are being invited to a drop-in event later this year in Perth.

Help@Hand will be held at the Christian Outreach Centre, Riggs Road, Perth, between 10.30am and 6pm on Wednesday 27 September 2017. Many local organisations will be attending to provide a wide range of information and advice on job seeking, training, further education and other options.

Any young person aged 14 and over who may need additional help with their learning and are looking for ideas for when they leave school is invited to come along during the day. Parents and carers are also very welcome.

The 2017 event marks a tenth year of collaboration between Perth & Kinross Council and local partners. Previous years evaluations have shown that the event is equally valuable to pupils, their parents and carers and indeed staff who have attended and made valuable professional connections.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we are again having a range of agencies supporting the event with an evening session (4pm-6pm) specially aimed at Parent and Carers of our young people. This is when we are planning to have speakers and exhibitors from employers and groups who are waiting to give young people with ASN experiences of life skills and the world of work.
