We’re pleased to introduced our brand new Youth Participation Project Worker for the Highlands & Moray, Scott Sangster.
Scott will be working with young people in Highlands & Moray to give them an opportunity to share their experiences of being part of an Armed Forces family. He will be continuing to work with the local forum groups we have already developed in those areas and facilitating new groups. He will work with the groups to develop individual action plans for their community/school looking to improve the support/ understanding of life as part of a forces family.
Scott’s previous experience include coaching and instructing during his travels in Europe, the US and South America. Since moving to the Highlands in 2001 he has worked in the public, private and voluntary sector including developing community and youth projects. He conducted these projects through outdoor pursuits to art projects.
Scott says about joining RCET during the Coronavirus pandemic, “In these strange times we are lucky to be able to turn to new skills that we can learn and access such as online resources until we can once again meet face-to-face. I know that we’ll be utilizing these newly acquired digital skills at RCET in order to continue to communicate with our Forums across Scotland, and for myself in Highlands & Moray.”
You can read more about Scott and his role in our upcoming Spring/Summer edition of postings due to be published next month.
