Helping unemployed young people find their futures.

Works+ has been supporting young people in the Scottish Borders since 2018. Our unique approach prioritises confidence and wellbeing alongside developing skills and employability options.

​Depending on the needs of each client, we work either in small groups or one-to-one. If you’re between 16 and 24 and unemployed, we can help you.
