Projects from Scotland to take part in Network Rail's No Messin' programme

Well done to everyone who submitted a proposal for the No Messin' Programme, powered by Network Rail. Six projects from Scotland have now been selected to participate.

The selection panels in England, Scotland and Wales had a large number of excellent ideas from youth groups throughout the United Kingdom, with ideas ranging from the clean-up and improvement of community areas to designing a board game to promote safe play, to leading peer education sessions on issues such as underage drinking.

The following projects from Scotland have been selected to participate; The 'Heads Up' Project from Dumbarton, Castlemilk Youth Complex, the South Queensferry and Roseberry Hall CE Centre, Kilbirnie Youth Action Group, Findhorn Youth Club and Dalmuir Youth Action Group.

These projects will join other teams from England and Wales on an all expenses paid residential in April at Avon Tyrell, UK Youth's activity centre in the New Forest, Hampshire. At the residential the teams will have the opportunity to meet and work with other young people from across the country, take part in a number of activities and develop their proposals further.

The teams have also been awarded £200 towards the cost of delivering the project, and will have the opportunity for team members to gain accreditation for their activities and support to raise awareness of their projects in the local community. Look out for information about how the projects got on in the next edition of Magnet!
