Young people

We support young people in the following areas


16–25 years

Dumfries & Galloway

15–25 years

We support young people find volunteer opportunities that are enjoyable, where they can make new friends and learn new skills. We provide one-to-one support and mentoring throughout the placement process, to build confidence and aspirations, as well providing practical support such as help with CVs and interview techniques.

There is no other service like Step Together Volunteering. The individual support you can offer to vulnerable young people and the care in putting them together with the right projects is critical

Each young person referred to us receives ongoing support that is tailored to their own needs, for as long as they wish to consider and continue volunteering.

We work closely with local council leaving care teams, family projects, probation services, local charities, community groups and support groups, and larger charities.
