LYPP has established itself as an integral link between the local schools and the wider community for some of the most disengaged young people in Linlithgow and surrounding areas.
At Linlithgow Academy we are involved in delivering personal and social education classes with most year groups, exploring issues such as online safety, stress and dealing with exams. We run ASDAN classes, work with young people to achieve JASS awards and train young people up as health and wellbeing buddies. We also run mentoring, through an organisation called TLG, which sees all the staff working with young people on a 1:1 weekly basis.
At Bridgend Primary School we run a weekly lunch time games club for those in primary 6 & 7 where we have fun playing games and crafting. Getting to know the young people while at this important stage in their lives allows to lend support as they prepare and transition in to secondary school.
