Tullochan was established in 1996 with the specific aim of providing a range of support services for young people within West Dunbartonshire. Since then Tullochan has grown and developed into the largest provider of youth services within West Dunbartonshire where we currently support over 500 young people each year aged 11-24. We have always changed and grown our services and activities in response to the requirements of local young people.
In line with prevailing need, our present focus is entirely on supporting vulnerable, disadvantaged young people, in particular those who are leading chaotic lives often without role models or structures to achieve their potential.
Our main activities are the delivery of a broad range of programmes under the priorities of health and well-being, personal development and employability. We operate within all five West Dunbartonshire secondary schools and provide a pipeline of support to young people throughout their schooling from S1 to S5 and include SQA qualifications as part of our model.
In addition to this to ensure a seamless and holistic delivery model we have developed a 16+ programme, Tullochan Futures, which is specifically focussed on employability and equipping young people with the skills to enable them to progress into employment, education or training.
Changing Attitudes Changing Lives is at the core of all our activities
