“My name is Kathleen Fuller. I am currently undergoing a Princes Trust programme which is a 12 week personal development course which helps young people aged between 16-25 years old get back into employment. We went on our residential trip to Aberfoyle on the 8th of August 2016. Blue Triangle helped me get ready for the three days away. This included buying clothes etc. that I needed. All the staff were very helpful and I appreciate their help and support. While on the residential we went abseiling which I was terrified of doing but it showed me that nothing is impossible if you push yourself to the limit. Thank you to everyone for your help and support.”
 

Congratulations to Stephen Whiteside from Wemyss House. Stephen has recently graduated from a Positive Futures Programme with Venture Trust.
This is a big achievement for Stephen (pictured above with his certificate) and we are all very proud of him!

Photos from the garden event and the Scottish Parliament motion can be seen on our Facebook page.
Hamilton project celebrated their 20th Anniversary on the 31st August with the grand unveiling of their organic garden and outdoor area, thanks to a £5000 donation from Santander.
Guests at the event included Margaret Ferrier MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West; Christina McKelvie MSP for Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse; and ex-Rangers players, John Brown and Ally Dawson. We were also joined by the adorable pupils of St Elizabeth's Primary (pictures with our mascot, Buddy) and their teacher, Miss Emmett who is a great champion of the project and the work they do. 
Also, just after the event Christina McKelvie MSP, praised the event and the work we do in Hamilton in a motion at Scottish Parliament.
Good luck to Kyle Priestly (24) who is travelling to Belfast today (7th Sept) with Street Soccer Scotland for the Home Nations football tournament hosted by Street Soccer NI.
The team sets off today arriving to a reception for the players tonight with games starting tomorrow, ending on Friday. 
Kyle had played football from a young age but it's only been over the last few years that he got into goal keeping. 
Kyle said "this trip means a lot to me because I missed out on the Homeless World Cup due to personal circumstances. I'll now get to show my ability and represent my country in this tournament". 
Robert from SSS said "these opportunities create social inclusion and some of the players create strong bonds which helps with the isolation they can feel at times".
GOOD LUCK to Kyle and all of Team Scotland!
