Creative Communities

Our Future Now

Tullochan Trust

Our Future Now investment supports ‘Tullochan Futures’; a post-16 personal development programme aimed at marginalised young people that are furthest removed from the job market in West Dunbartonshire.  The aim is to improve their wellbeing and resilience and gain the skills, confidence and experience to make a successful and sustainable transition to a productive, health life. The service provides 1-2-1 support and mentoring, family engagement and support, group activities and the delivery of SQA and REHIS qualifications.  Work placements are provided through Tullochan’s social enterprise ventures, where ‘on the job’ training opportunities offer learning and skills development in a supported environment. Ongoing, in-work support is also offered to improve the sustainability of young people’s achievements.

Tullochan’s Creative Communities project involves bringing together older people with skills to share with younger people to upcycle furniture and participate in creative projects.
