Beyond Earlston is a registered charity based in the Scottish Borders we provide a variety of activities in the towns and villages which make up our catchment area. We provide activities to young people aged 12- 18 irrespective of gender or ability.
We are based in Earlston High School where you can find the staff team and where we store our equipment. And are able to conduct small meetings as well as one to one sessions. It is here where we work in partnership with Earlston Community Councils Earlston in Bloom team alongside the Earlston High School to work on our intergenerational gardening project.
We are part of the Stepping Stones Project which is a new and innovative partnership between ourselves and the other six locality managers and YouthBorders. This project is designed to give additional support to young people on their terms as a self-referral project offering guidance in relation to confidence, mental and physical health and relationships.
