Colleagues from Rathbone Training’s Big Lottery funded X-Ceed (Extra Coaching to Engage and Expand Development) project joined representatives from leading social action projects across Scotland who were finalists in the SURF awards on Tuesday 6th December 2016.
X-Ceed engages with the most vulnerable and ‘hard to reach’ young people aged 14-25 in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian to support their progression to work.
The project was shortlisted in the ‘Youth Employability: Removing Barriers’ category at the awards, which aim to recognise, reward and share best practice and innovation in community regeneration by showcasing outstanding projects that have made a real difference in improving the wellbeing of individuals and communities.
“The X-Ceed team has shown real passion, enthusiasm and skill in engaging with young people, partners and stakeholders and the broader community and they should be very proud of being a finalist in these prestigious awards. They have done themselves and all at Rathbone Training proud,” said Kate Still, Director for the Devolved Nations at Rathbone Training.
The eventual winners in the category were Street League.
