Life to the Full Project
Broughty Ferry Baptist Church have committed to improve the life chances of young people through contributing to their mental, social and spiritual wellbeing. The aim is to build resilience towards critical challenges and issues in their lives. The project works on the principle that through early and effective intervention at key transitional points in young people’s lives, the right support at the right time can prevent situations arising which adversely affect young people and improve outcomes. The project will primarily serve young people aged 11 to 18 years residing in Broughty Ferry, Dundee.
The Life to the Full project received full funding from The Robertson Trust and The Joseph Rank Trust as well as financial donations from the church fellowship. The project started on 1 March 2017 and will be delivered for three years.
