Youth based services are coming together to raise the profile of work with young people across the Falkirk council area.

The youth work network includes:

Falkirk Council - Community Learning and Development

LGBT Youth Scotland

Young Carers at Falkirk and Clackmannanshire Carers Centre

Falkirk Council - Care Leavers Service

Youth Scotland

Young Scot

along with many others.

The campaign is called 9000 reasons to help young people, as there are approximately 9000 plus young people aged 12 -16 in the Falkirk area.  Each service is looking to take part in an activity around the theme of 9000 this will take place during National Youth Work week 01 November to 7th November.  Some of these activities will have an environmental theme to recognise COP 26.

Some people are planning to walk 9000 steps, some are litter picking 9 bags of rubbish, make a 9 piece breakfast, research 9 jobs, organise a 9 round quiz night or collect 9000 pieces of trash to make trash and fash fashion show outfits.
